The HITS-Yale Program in Astrophysics (HYPA) is an initiative, sponsored by the Klaus Tschira Foundation to foster collaboration between astronomers at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) in Heidelberg and at Yale.
HYPA is jointly run by Prof. Volker Springel at HITS and Frank van den Bosch at Yale, and is initially funded for a 4-year period. This includes funding for two Tschira Postdoctoral Fellows, each of whom will spend two years at Yale and two years at HITS.
The collaboration will also include collaboration meetings, where astronomers from HITS come to visit Yale, and vice versa.
