The Einstein Telescope is one of the parties that will receive Interreg subsidy following the closure of Call 5. This call closed last week. Our Monitoring Committee selected 6 new projects, including E-TEST.
E-TEST is an important component of Einstein Telescope. It will run an underground study to identify the optimum design and location for the Einstein Telescope. A consortium of 11 partners from Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands will run the study. Lead partner of the project is Université de Liège.
E-TEST receives EUR 7.5 million from the European Regional Development Fund. The following regions will contribute co-financing, another EUR 7.5 million in total: the Province of Limburg (NL), the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, Flanders, Flemish Brabant, Wallonia and North Rhine-Westphalia.
