ASTRO 3D is a seven-year $40 million Centre of Excellence project funded by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council (ARC). The Centre, which began in June 2017 and will end in June 2024, unifies over 200 world-leading astronomers to understand the evolution of matter, light and the elements, from the Big Bang to the present day. We are combining innovative optical and radio 3D technology with new theoretical supercomputer simulations on a massive scale, requiring new big data techniques.

ICRAR’s two nodes at Curtin University and The University of Western Australia are also nodes of ASTRO 3D.

Many of our researchers are members and work within the ASTRO 3D team to further both Centre’s research and outreach efforts.
