CIRCE: Studying ultra-high-energy cosmic rays

Ultra-high-energy cosmic rays are the most energetic particles known, with the highest-energy event ever observed at 3.2x1020 eV, many orders of magnitude above the energy of protons accelerated at e.g. CERN. Their sources and their…

Galactic SNe Remnants: Exploring an unexploited treasure

The goal of the proposed research, lead by Dr. Ioanna Leonidaki, is to perform a multi-wavelength study of the Galactic Supernova Remnant (SNR) population. SNRs in the Milky Way are an ideal…

ORIGAMI: The Origin of the Galactic Magnetic Field

Knowing the strength and morphology of the galactic magnetic field lies at the heart of virtually all the outstanding problems in galactic astrophysics. If strong enough, the magnetic field can shape the interstellar medium and determine the rate…

Accreting binary populations in Nearby Galaxies: Observations and Simulations (A-BINGOS)

Accreting binaries are binary stellar systems consisting of a compact object that accretes material from a donor star. The compact object can be either a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole, while the donor star can be either a massive…
