Abstract: Radio imaging of ULIR galaxies is ideal to explore the connection between the starburst and the AGN phenomenon since it is unaffected by dust obscuration, and provides the required high angular resolution to distinguish between an AGN and starburst emission at the centres of these galaxies. We present λ 18cm radio continuum, EVN and MERLIN observations of two ULIRGs (from a sample of 13), and assess the contribution of an AGN or a starburst to the total energy distribution.
