Abstract: Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) is providing key information to the study of maser processes in the Universe, from star formation regions or circumstellar envelopes around evolved stars, to Galactic structure and cosmology, through precise astrometry. VLBI networks offer various capabilities and, most importantly, support to users, to ensure that these infrastructures are fully accesible and that the best science can emerge. In this paper we describe the advances in VLBI that enable exciting maser stu…
