Terms of Reference


The Terms of Reference of the Nuclear Physics Forum are as follows.
  1. To provide an interchange of information between the nuclear-physics groups within the UK by reporting informally on the status of current projects.

  2. To disseminate information on the coordination and submission of grant proposals to the various funding agencies.

  3. To discuss the future directions of nuclear physics within the UK.

  4. Where appropriate, to act as a voice of the UK nuclear-physics community at international facilities and in international collaborations.

  5. Where appropriate, to put forward UK representatives for international committees and groups.


These Terms of Reference were agreed at the first Nuclear Physics Forum meeting at Daresbury on 20th April 2005 and at the Cosener's House meeting on 25th and 26th May 2005. These Terms of Reference were discussed at the kick-off meeting of the revived Nuclear Physics Forum in May 2014. It was decided that the Terms of Reference should be dynamic, in that they are reviewed again after a few meetings to decide if they are relevant or if they need revising.
