The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery

(OzGrav)

OzGrav will begin operations in early 2017!

OzGrav’s mission is to capitalise on the historic first detections of gravitational waves to understand the extreme physics of black holes and warped spacetime, and to inspire the next generation of Australian scientists and engineers through this new window on the Universe.
