“The Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee is an Expert Committee of the European Science Foundation.”
The objective of NuPECC is to:
- develop the strategy for European Collaboration in nuclear science by supporting collaborative ventures between research groups within Europe;
- promote nuclear physics and its trans-disciplinary use in applications for societal benefit.
In pursuing this objective the Committee shall:
- provide advice and make strategic recommendations to funding agencies and decision-making bodies;
- define a network of complementary facilities within Europe and encourage optimisation of their usage;
- provide a forum for the discussion of the provision of future facilities and instrumentation;
- contribute to public education and awareness.
The Committee is composed of:
The Members of the Committee are national organisations involved in nuclear science or multi-national nuclear research facilities in Europe. The distribution of Members across the different European countries and organisations should aim to reflect the activities in nuclear science in the different scientific fields and the different countries. The Representatives of Members in the Committee shall be drawn from experts active in nuclear science and proposed by the Members of NuPECC.
The Committee may invite research organisations to become Associated Members of the Committee. The Associated Members will participate in the work of the Committee without voting rights and shall contribute to the Committee budget.
The Committee may invite research organisations to become an Observer at the Committee meetings. The Observers have no voting rights and have no obligation to contribute to the Committee budget.
