The BiD4BEST Innovative Training Network (ITN) is providing doctoral training in one of the most visible areas of astrophysical research, the formation of supermassive black holes in the galaxy.

In anticipation of new observational data arriving this decade from space missions with strong European involvement BiD4BEST has recruited a team of early stage researchers from across the world with the aim of producing transformational science on the formation of black holes in galaxies.

From across Europe leading scientists in observational and theoretical studies of black holes and galaxies, industrial experts in cutting-edge big technologies, and professionals in science dissemination have been brought together to set up research projects which will combine the latest state-of-the-art observations, numerical simulations and innovative analytic tools to compare theory with observation, and shed light on the physics of black hole formation in the context of galaxy evolution.
