Science partners


International Center for Astronomy Research was founded in August 2009 with the specific purpose of supporting Australia’s bid to host the world’s largest radio telescope and one of the largest scientific endeavors in history, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). ICRAR is a joint venture between Curtin University and The University of Western Australia (UWA), with funding support from the State Government of Western Australia. ICRAR has research nodes at both universities and is now host to over 100 staff and postgraduate students.
