Huib van Langevelde has been appointed professor in Galactic radio astronomy at Leiden University. As the director of the JIVE and as a recognized scientist, he plays an important role in the definition of new methods and facilities in the field of radio-astronomy.

NEXPReS, integrating VLBI and e-VLBI astronomy techniques, concludes three year project

The NEXPReS project successfully concluded on 30 June 2013, after three years of technology development for VLBI. The aim of NEXPReS was to eliminate the distinction between traditional disk-based VLBI and real-time e-VLBI, by incorporating elements of each into every observation by the EVN.

Triggered e-EVN observations help pinpoint puzzling white dwarf

The "triggered e-VLBI" capability of the European VLBI Network has aided an extremely precise measurement of the distance to a star system. This has allowed astronomers to finally solve a decade-old puzzle, confirming our understanding of the way exotic objects like black holes swallow the material they rip off the surface of nearby binary companion stars.

JIVE and the EVN demonstrate ORIENTplus link with e-VLBI observation

JIVE and the EVN conduct a live e-VLBI demo at a launch event for the newly upgraded ORIENTplus link between Beijing and London.

VIRAC’s 32 m radio telescope participates in e-VLBI observations with the European VLBI Network

On 19 March, the 32 meter radio telescope at Irbene, operated by Ventspils International Radio Astronomy Center (VIRAC), successfully participated in e-VLBI observations with the EVN.

PRIDE chosen for ESA's JUICE mission

The Planetary Radio Interferometry and Doppler Experiment (PRIDE) led by JIVE has been chosen by the ESA for the science suite of its flagship Jupiter icy moons explorer mission.
