The Centre will for the first time in history coordinate terascale high energy physics research across Australia, creating new research groups at the Universities of Adelaide and Sydney and augmenting groups at Melbourne and Monash. It will greatly enhance international linkages. Through it, the Australian Government will liaise with key scientific organisations active in high energy physics, advanced computing and accelerator science. The advanced Grid computing programme will develop important relationships with national and state computing facilities, and major corporations. Building upon the huge media interest in the Large Hadron Collider, the Centre will highlight the benefits of big science.
