Anniversary logo for 25 years of SPARC anniversary event On 1 December 2017, SPARC will celebrate its 25th anniversary and, after six years of operation in Zurich, the move of its international project office from ETH Zurich to the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen. The anniversary event program includes talks from SPARC's hosts and sponsors as well as science contributions that look both back over 25 years as well as ahead into the future of SPARC research.

While attendance is free of charge, advance registration is asked for to facilitate planning. To view the full program as well as to complete the registration form, see the event website on SPARC's homepage. The event will take place in the afternoon of Friday, 1 December, at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich).

SPARC has been founded in 1992 largely in response to concerns about the consequences of stratospheric ozone depletion. Since, it has evolved into a major international research coordination hub for atmospheric sciences. SPARC's goal is to facilitate cutting-edge research that improves understanding and prediction of atmospheric processes. Its community counts over 3000 active researchers from around the world.
