This section of the site will provide links to our regular eNews newsletters, inform the press of upcoming SKA related events and activities, and members of the public with up to date information on the SKA. Members of the SKA community at large can read the SKAO Bi-Monthly Bulletin, which provides updates on the project and activities of SKAO staff from the SKA Organisation Headquarters at Jodrell Bank.

Brand Guidelines

The SKA is a global organisation – its strength lies in the cooperation of international partners. This means that many groups and individuals work and communicate on behalf of the SKA.

The brand guidelines contain rules for use of the logo and other elements of the SKA visual identity.

The guidelines help all project partners to protect the SKA identity, and build uniformity and recognition across the project.
