To unlock the mysteries of the Universe using innovative 3D technology, while sharing the excitement and wonder of astronomy to inspire the broader community.
- To propel Australia to the forefront of astronomical research by combining Australia’s radio, optical and theoretical expertise to understand the origins of our Universe and the galaxies within it.
- To train future Australian astronomers to lead breakthrough science on the next generation of telescopes.
- To share our discoveries and passion for research with the broadest possible audience and inspire the scientists of the future.
We have established a collaborative and cohesive structure to ensure the effective and efficient delivery of the Centre’s Strategic Goals and on meeting our Key Performance Indicators.
ASTRO 3D seeks to ensure that every person in the Centre has the opportunity and support to reach their full potential.
The Centre is committed to diversity in all of its forms and aims to ensure that we:
- celebrate and value diversity;
- create a fair and respectful workplace culture; and
- build and retain diverse capabilities and experiences.
This Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan focuses on areas of greatest need, with the intention of embedding the values of honesty, trust, transparency, respect, diversity, fairness, and inclusion, and associated behaviours as part of a defined and communicated culture. To achieve this, the Centre will focus on:
- establishing and promoting the business case for diversity and inclusion equality,
- improving gender composition and balance; and
- embedding flexibility and diversity into the Centre’s culture, encouraging collaborative solutions to individual needs where practicable.
The ASTRO 3D leadership team is headed by our Director, Professor Lisa Kewley who is supported by a highly experienced team of professional staff and researchers.
The ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3 Dimensions (ASTRO 3D) is a $40m Research Centre of Excellence funded over seven years by a grant from the Australian Research Council (ARC) and supported by six collaborating Australian universities – the ANU, Swinburne University of Technology, University of Western Australia, University of Sydney, Curtin University and the University of Melbourne – as well as three national partners – the Australian Astronomical Observatory, CSIRO and the National Computational Infrastructure – and seven international partner institutions – the California Institute of Technology, University of Oxford, University of Toronto, University of Washington, the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies
