The Royal Observatory Edinburgh (ROE) is a historic site which combines three organisations:
- UK Astronomy Technology Centre (UK ATC) – an establishment of the Science and Technologies Facilities Council (STFC)
- Institute for Astronomy (IfA) – part of the University of Edinburgh
- ROE Visitor Centre – run by the UK ATC, and coordinator of the outreach work of both UK ATC and IfA.
The ROE is unique in combining astronomical research, forefront technology, teaching, public outreach, and a rich historical heritage on a single site.
The ROE Trust is a registered charity which acts to protect and showcase the heritage of the ROE, and to develop projects connected with public interest in Astronomy.
