Organizational chart. For more info see SRON's Organization webpage.

SRON has a hybrid matrix structure consisting of

  • four programme lines (Technology, Astrophysics, Earth, and Exoplanets), with a science group attached to each (and a TT&V group attached to Technology),
  • two expertise groups (Instrument science and Engineering), and
  • the General support group.

Each programme/group maintains a set of info pages (for the General support group only internal to SRON).

ASTROPHYSICS

The Astrophysics programme at SRON is dedicated to unraveling the history of the universe, from the first stars and black holes to large-scale structure.

EARTH

The Earth programme covers SRON’s activities on unraveling the impact of trace gases and aerosols in the atmosphere on the climate and air quality of planet Earth.

EXOPLANETS

The Exoplanets programme is dedicated to atmospheres of other planets and is an in-between of SRON's Astrophysics and Earth programmes.
 
 
 
   

TECHNOLOGY

The Technology programme is SRON's backbone for development of enabling technology and technology transfer & valorisation.

INSTRUMENT SCIENCE

The Instrument science group covers SRON's skills and know-how with regard to instrument physics, system engineering (up to full-instrument level) and project management. It is an expertise group that provides resources for all SRON instrument projects.

ENGINEERING

The Engineering group covers SRON's skills and know-how with regard to product assurance, quality assurance, configuration control, design engineering – electronic & mechanical – and parts procurement. It is an expertise group that provides resources for all SRON instrument projects.

SRON’s mission is to bring about breakthroughs in international space research 

Therefore the institute develops pioneering technology and advanced space instruments, and uses them to pursue fundamental astrophysical research, Earth science and exoplanetary research. As national expertise institute SRON gives counsel to the Dutch government and coordinates - from a science standpoint - national contributions to international space missions. SRON stimulates the implementation of space science in our society.
