 Back to Global Sky Partners


Sri Lanka Astronomical Research Initiative (SLARI) will spearhead the development of astronomical research in Sri Lanka. The initiative will work at two levels: 1) astronomical research by student groups (first-third year undergraduate students), and 2) astronomical research by final-year undergraduate students as part of their final year research work. The level 1 effort will be on a volunteer basis, uncredited, but linked to their course and higher studies. The level 2 effort will be a part of their final year undergraduate research work and credited.
