Einstein Telescope: Instrument Science Board kick-off

The kick-off meeting of the Instrument Science Board of Einstein Telescope project took place today. More than 60 participants took part in it.

ISB was established in December 2020 by the Einstein Telescope Steering Committee. Our colleague, dr Mariusz Suchenek, leader of AstroCeNT research group 3, is one of the members of the Board.

Einstein Telescope is a proposed third-generation ground-based gravitational wave detector, currently under study by some institutions in the European Union. It will be able to test Einstein’s general theory of relativity in strong field conditions and realize precision gravitational wave astronomy.

The ET is a design study project supported by the European. It concerns the study and the conceptual design for a new research infrastructure in the emergent field of gravitational-wave astronomy.
