NuPECC Meeting


On March 17th and 18th, NuPECC (Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee) met for the first time in Slovenia. NuPECC is an expert committee, hosted by the European Science Foundation. It was founded in 1988,  today it consists of 37 representatives from 22 member states, three large European infrastructures and four associate members. Slovenia is among the member states as well and is represented by Dr Jelena Vesić from our department. Every year, the committee invites 9 observers from sister organizations on other continents to its 3 regular meetings. The goal of NuPECC is to develop a strategy for European cooperation in the field of nuclear science by supporting cooperation between research groups in Europe and promoting nuclear physics and its transdisciplinary use in applications for societal benefit. The committee issues a long-term plan for nuclear physics in Europe every 6-7 years, a new long-term plan is currently being prepared.

As a part of the meeting, a half-day workshop with interesting lectures took place, presentations can be found here.
