2 WP 5 EuroVO-AIDA – Second periodic review – 30 March 2010 Massimo Ramella, WPMTL, INAF Objectives Provide tools for access to VO data for higher education students, for middle school teachers and students, and for amateur astronomers Provide some basic information on the main classes of objects available to our public within the Euro VO database. Contact various international projects for the diffusion of astronomy in order to merge (part of) their knowledge base with our outreach interfaces
