Major new funding for UCL High Energy Physics
23 November 2006
The UCL High Energy Physics Group has been awarded a substantial grant from the Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (PPARC).
In awarding the grant, the peer review panel congratulated the group on its exciting physics programme. The award comes as recognition of the group's outstanding programme in collider and neutrino physics, in terms of both scientific leadership and expertise in the required technology.
Professor Jon Butterworth, head of the UCL High Energy Physics group, said: "This is a really exciting time for us, especially with the CERN Large Hadron Collider starting up next year. This funding will allow us to keep UCL at the forefront of research in fundamental particle physics for years to come."
