The Gravitational-wave Excellence through Alliance Training (GrEAT) Network with China is an STFC funded network which aims to build links between UK-China based on gravitational wave research so as to strengthen capacity for gravitational wave research in China.

The network brings together several Chinese and UK universities to address challenges described as follows.


  1. Identify potential industrial and commercial partners in China for GW technology and expertise exploitation.
  2. Provide high-quality training for early-career researchers on the planning and delivery of outreach on gravitational-wave astronomy.
  3. Provide training on data analysis and numerical modelling that will have applications to gravitational wave research and beyond.
  4. Build the necessary skill base to develop/fabricate/install and innovate future detector technologies.
  5. Support PhD students and early career researchers from Chinese institutions working on space GW detectors to train in the UK.
