Active Collaborations



EGO is promoting and coordinating activities on Gravitational Wave research, supported by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programmes

Currently active collaborations are:

    • Exchange of researchers between Europe and Japan focused on the cryogenic technologies for the ET and LCGT (now KAGRA) gravitational wave observatories.
    • Initial Training Network aimed to train 13 young researchers (PhD students) in the gravitational wave (GW) search field.




the 3rd general meeting was held in Japan, February 9-10th, 2015.

Twelve out of thirteen ESRs (Early Stage Researchers) have been recruited.
From the 20th of April to the 8th of May, 2015 a three weeks school, addressed to PhD students and young post-docs in scientific disciplines, focused on gravitational wave science and technology, will be held at EGO.
