Rights and Duties of Pensioners

On initiative from GAC-EPA, and taking only some of our feedback into account, ESO has published two documents  that provide the management framework for retired ESO staff members:

The first document concerns pensioners who wish to continue working at ESO on a voluntary basis to follow their own research interests and/or to otherwise support ESO’s activities. The second document deals Emeriti specifically .

Both documents have become effective as of 1 August 2021. Practical experience with these guidelines will be gathered and if necessary updates to these guidelines will be made.
