The CHIANTI project was originally set up by Dr. Ken Dere of the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, Dr. Helen Mason of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge, and Prof. Brunella Monsignori-Fossi of the Arcetri Astrophysical Observatory in Florence, Italy. Former students of Dr. Monsignori-Fossi (Dr. Enrico Landi) and Dr. Mason (Dr. Peter Young) helped in the creation of the database. The sad and unexpected death of Dr. Monsignori-Fossi in January 1995, led to Prof. Massimo Landini, a close associate of Dr. Monsignori-Fossi, becoming the new CHIANTI representative in Florence.

Additional collaborations have involved Dr. Dave Pike of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL), who has converted the CHIANTI routines to run within the environment of the CDS software, and with Dr. Gordon Bromage, Dr. Barbara Bromage and her former student Dr. Giulio Del Zanna of the University of Central Lancashire.

Dr. Enrico Landi, now at the Naval Research Laboratory, Dr. Peter Young, now at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (UK), and Dr. Giulio Del Zanna, now at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Cambridge University, have continued to be active collaborators in the CHIANTI project.
