The CTA is an initiative which is planning the construction of a new generation of Cherenkov Telescopes to study the universe in very high energy gamma-rays. Gamma-rays carry information about the most violent and extreme events in the universe.
The CTA Observatory will be the global gamma-ray facility for the next decades. CTAO will be one fundamental pillar of the multimessenger astroparticle science. We present its framework, objectives and structure, with a special emphasis on the present phase of transition from concept development to construction of infrastructure and telescope array
