Abstract

Very Large Telescope Inerferometer (VLTI) schools have nearly a 20-year history and have trained a significant fraction of today’s optical interferometrists who use high-angular-resolution techniques on a regular basis. Very early in the development of the VLTI, training was identified by the community as a necessary tool, as the expertise in optical long-baseline interferometry was limited to a few groups in France and Germany (in those early years the UK was not an ESO member state). The first VLTI school took place in Les Houches, France, in 2002 and since then VLTI schools have been organised in several locations (France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Portugal) roughly every two years, the previous one being held in 2018 in Lisbon. The VLTI schools are funded and coordinated through the European Interferometry Initiative (Eii).
