Amaldi Research Center

The AMALDI Research Center is an interdisciplinary Center for both Gravitation Physics and Astrophysics. It is dedicated to Edoardo Amaldi, and has the purpose of

  1. consolidating the role of the Physics Department and Italy (in general) within the international Gravitational-Wave (GW) research community;
  2. exploiting the scientific return provided by the kilometer-scale laser interferometers LIGO and Virgo;
  3. being a key player for the design and development of the third-generation (3G) detectors (such as Einstein Telescope) and LISA gravity telescopes;
  4. training a new generation of students and researchers with strong transversal skills;
  5. being an incubator for new ideas helping to cover frequency bands beyond those typical for current ground-based GW detectors;
  6. promoting technology transfer to industries and enterprises; (vii) coordinate outreach activities.
