To reach its goals, the RadioLife project uses many telescope.radiolife_logo_4_grey-white_final
The project uses radio telescopes (LOFAR, WSRT, VLA, ATCA, EVN) and optical telescopes and instruments (Sinfoni@VLT, MUSE@VLT).P1020176a

The main focus  of the group is on using LOFAR (and improve the calibration and imaging) and prepare for Apertif, the Phased-Array-Feed upgrade of the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope.
