IAPS-IAU Collaboration established!

We are excited to announce that IAPS has established a formal collaboration with the International Astronomical Union (IAU), in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the IAU Office for Astronomy Outreach (OAO) and the Division C on Education, Heritage, and Outreach!

Signed on May 4th, this MoU expresses the importance of cooperation on matters such as outreach, advocacy, diversity and science communication, in particular within the scope of the amazing work of the IAU on all these aspects.

We look forward to many practical ways to reflect this connection between the IAPS and the IAU communities, spread across the world.

Due to the date of signing and the astronomy theme, it is only logical to wish everybody (even with some delay): May the fourth be with you!
