Big Bang. Big Data. Big Goals.

The "Big Bang to Big Data" cluster aims to synergistically improve the understanding and processing of radio astronomical 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, and companies will have the opportunity to test industrial applications.

This is accompanied by the goal of establishing new qualification programs for young scientists in this interdisciplinary context.

To achieve these goals, six work packages have been defined.
