SPEAKER: Dr. M. Punturo (INFN Perugia)

ABSTRACT: The detection of the gravitational waves by Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo opened a new era in the observation of the Universe: a
new messenger is allowing us to discover unexpected dark events and to contribute to multimessenger observations of astronomical catastrophes.
A new gravitational wave observatory, Einstein Telescope (ET), is proposed to fully exploit the potential of the gravitational wave astrophysics.

ET will observe the coalescence of black holes and neutron stars in almost the whole Universe having a decisive impact in cosmology, astrophysics, nuclear and fundamental physics.

The achievements of the advanced detectors and the perspectives of Einstein Telescope project will be presented.
