Gravitational-wave Excellence through Alliance Training (GrEAT) Network with China

The Gravitational-wave Excellence through Alliance Training (GrEAT) Network with China is an STFC funded network which aims to build links between UK-China based on gravitational wave research so as to strengthen capacity for gravitational wave research in China. The network brings together several Chinese and UK universities to address challenges described by the following work packages (WP).

Future projects to collaborate

WP1 Economic growth and innovation

WP1 This work package will focus on identifying potential industrial and commercial partners in China for GW technology and expertise exploitation. Activities will include organising workshops where UK GW teams can showcase their technologies to potential industry partners in China. Leads: Junwei Cao, Des Gibson

WP2: Quality education and public outreach

WP2 This work package will, in collaboration with our Chinese partners, provide high-quality training for early-career researchers on the planning and delivery of outreach on gravitational-wave astronomy. We will develop resources suitable for both formal and informal learners. Leads: Martin Hendry, Zong-Hong Zhu

WP3: Big Data analysis and modelling

WP3 This work package will provide training on data analysis and numerical modelling that will have applications to gravitational wave research and beyond. Leads: Nils Andersson, Xilong Fan, Patrick Sutton

WP4: Ultra-high precision measurement technology and instrumentation

WP4 This work package will build the necessary skill base to develop/fabricate/install and innovate future detector technologies. It will also provide support to grow the necessary expertise for a future GW detector in China. Leads: Giles Hammond, Stuart Reid, Baoqing Sun

WP5: Space GW detectors

WP5 This work package will support PhD students and early career researchers from Chinese institutions working on space GW detectors to train in the UK in an effort to define the issues and specific needs for their project, thereby fostering long-term collaborative links between the UK and China. Leads: Tim Sumner, Alberto Vecchio, Zebing Zhou
