The "Big Bang to Big Data" cluster combines radio astronomical research with data science expertise.

Radio astronomical data streams are made available to science and industry to develop and test new algorithms. The goal is to synergistically improve the understanding and processing of these data as well as to methodically and infrastructurally prepare science for the growing flood of data.

Based on the B3D results, a "Big Data Campus" is to be established in NRW in five years' time, where automated data processing and quality management procedures will be further developed using Big Data and AI methods. Here, companies will have the opportunity to test industrial applications.

New qualification programs are being developed for young scientists in this interdisciplinary context.
