Innoseis is now part of the Dutch National Science Agenda (NWA), a large financing instrument from the government that involves the public in deciding which questions science should try to answer (and fund).

Within the NWA project the Dutch Black Hole Consortium (DBHC) we support a nation wide programme to study black holes from various angles – via capturing gravitational waves to imaging the black hole with telescopes and exploring fundamental (mathematical) theories.

The DBHC is also involved in the latest image of Saggitarius A*, our “own” black hole in the center of the Milky Way (see image). Together with scientist from this consortium we also develop new technologies around the possible Einstein Telescope. Read more about this NWA project here:
