Meynadier Frédéric - Gaia
Gaia was proposed in 1993 and since then, many people have been involved in the Gaia mission, whether at ESA, at industry side or at one of the institutes involved in the Gaia data processing. The Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC) is a collaboration which consists of around 450 scientists and engineers.
The list of Gaia contributors presented here should not be considered a complete representation of the entire consortium. A more complete list of Gaia contributors that were involved in the creation of the Gaia catalogues can be obtained from the author lists of the Gaia Collaboration papers (for Gaia Data Release 1 see here, for Gaia Data Release 2 see here, for Gaia Early Data Release 3 see here). A history of contributions to the Gaia mission can be found from the acknowledgements given with each data release.

Observatoire de Paris-Meudon
I worked on the Gaia Project as a developer for non-single stars data processing, and as deputy-manager of the spectroscopic data processing Coordination Unit for almost 2 years. I would have been delighted to continue working within the Gaia project, but an unexpected opportunity for a permanent position on another project arose and I really couldn't take the risk to refuse it...
So, I'd like to seize this opportunity to thank very warmly all the fine people I met during these two years. It has been a pleasure to work with all of you. I hope we'll meet again and wish you luck and success for the years to come!
