Membership

CRAF’s members:

The members of CRAF are appointed by ESF, after consultation through the appropriate channel. They are drawn among experts active in the field of spectrum management at radio astronomical institutes complemented by ESF and NSF representatives. The members represent their country or organization (in case of ESA, IRAM and IVS).
At present, CRAF has 26 members from 23 countries from Europe and South Africa.
