A new window on the Universe

The underground Einstein Telescope will be Europe's most advanced observatory for gravitational waves. It will allow researchers to hear black holes collide and learn about the early universe. The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany are jointly studying whether to host this world-class observatory.

Einstein Telescope and the Euregio Meuse-Rhine

The border area of the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany is a promising location for the Einstein Telescope thanks to its unique soil that dampens disruptive vibrations. Good connections and the network of knowledge institutions and companies also make the area attractive.

When stars collide or black holes form, space vibrates

Gravitational waves contain information about the most extreme events in the universe, from the nature of black holes and neutron stars to the first moments after the Big Bang. Thanks to these waves, we can study the cosmos as never before.
