Good news! The Dutch government announced today that it will invest 18.8M euros in research and development for instrumentation for the European Extremely Large Telescope in the next decade. Around 8 million will be spent in the next 3 years, with the remaining 10M covering the period beyond 2012. The money was awarded to NOVA, the Dutch Research School for Astronomy, an umbrella partnership of the five Dutch astronomy institutes – Amsterdam, Groningen, Leiden, Nijmegen and Utrecht.
