The OAD received a total of 230 proposals across all Task Forces by the 31 August 2013 deadline for the most recent Call for Proposals. All proposals were evaluated by the respective Task Force, taking into consideration the selection criteria as announced in the Call. Each Task Force then submitted their recommendations to the IAU Extended Development Oversight Committee (EDOC). During November 2013 the EDOC discussed the Task Force recommendations and made the final funding allocations.

Twenty-three projects to be implemented in 2014 were selected for funding. Those proposals that were considered of high enough quality but which could not be funded were placed onto a wish list, which is summarized in the following map. We now appeal to you for advice and assistance so that the OAD can find the resources necessary to make these projects happen.

Click on the dots on the map to access information and contacts for each of the wish list projects. You will also find a link to the full submitted proposal (.pdf file). For any additional information, please email the OAD at
