NuPecc

Strengthening European collaboration in nuclear physics

Mission

The Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee (NuPECC) is hosted and administered by the European Science Foundation (ESF). NuPECC’s aim is to promote collaborative ventures between nuclear physicists within Europe and particularly from countries linked to ESF. 

The mission of this Expert Committee is to: 

  • Strengthen European collaboration in nuclear physics
  • Define a network of complementary facilities within Europe and encourage their optimum usage
  • Provide a forum for discussion of the provision of future facilities and instrumentation
  • Issue recommendations on the development, organisation and support of European nuclear physics and particular projects. 

Membership, Structure, and Funders

NuPECC is composed of experts proposed by Subscribing Institutions active in nuclear physics research. 

The Committee is chaired by Professor Angela Bracco (Dipartimento di Fisica and INFN sez. Milano, Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy) and its scientific secretary is Dr. Gabriele-Elisabeth Kӧrner (Technische Universität München).

The membership list is available on the NUPECC website.
