More than one hundred of INAF scientists are interested in participating to the Rubin LSST project.
In anticipation of this wide collaboration, that will be regulated with an agreement in exchange of “in-kind” contribution, ongoing activities and plans for future participation are being organized across 8 main science themes, that are listed below.
A preliminary list of the staff interested in these areas is show here
