Abstract

Designed by ESO astronomers, the Astronomy Research Training (ART) provides an intensive introductory course in astronomy to university-level students with no prior education in astronomy. The aim is to expand the astronomical community by empowering the participants to conduct research projects with open-source data. The first ESO ART was successfully conducted in Ghana in April 2018. We provide an overview of this new initiative here.
