Accelerator-based infrastructures in the fields of particle and nuclear physics

The Council for Research Infrastructures (RFI) within the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) commits a significant part of its annual budget to accelerator-based infrastructures in particle and nuclear physics. The funding covers membership fees, running costs and investments. The Swedish activities in these fields are mainly focused on CERN (Geneva, Switzerland) and FAIR (Darmstadt, Germany).

In 2019, RFI decided to commission an investigation and landscape analysis of the research infrastructures they fund in these fields. The report is meant to support the Council’s work in ensuring that these funds are strategically well-spent and of maximum benefit to the research community. A panel of seven experts from the Nordic countries have worked on the task with the aid of data from relevant documentation, hearings, interviews and questionnaires. The report contains several concrete recommendations given from the authors to RFI.
