The GrEAT network is happy to announce the start of an online seminar series or “webinars” on gravitational wave science! Experts from China and the UK will be delivering talks every two weeks on a particular area of their research.

Members of the GrEAT network should get in touch if they require connection information.

Please see the schedule below for dates and speakers and you can access the videos here.
