CAASTRO-ARC-logo-H-cmyk-[Converted]ICRAR’s two nodes at Curtin University and The University of Western Australia are also nodes of CAASTRO, the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics.

Many of our researchers are CAASTRO members and work within the CAASTRO team to further both ICRAR and CAASTRO’s research and outreach efforts.

CAASTRO’s research is in three themes—Dynamic, Dark and Evolving. The Curtin node participates in the Evolving and Dynamic themes, and the UWA node in the Dark and Evolving themes.
