ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery approved
The Australian Research Council announced this morning the outcomes of the Centres of Excellence scheme, and I'm delighted to report that our Centre for Gravitational Wave Discovery, aka OzGRav, was approved! The Centre, led by Swinburne's Prof. Matthew Bailes, will support research into detecting gravitational waves with interferometric detectors like Advanced LIGO as well as the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array. Nineteen Chief Investigators from six Australian universities will join with 15 partners from Australia and all over the world, in a program extending for the next 7 years. A great time to be a gravitational wave astronomer!
