2012 Consolidated Grant awarded to Experimental Particle Physics (EPP) group
The 2012 Consolidated Grant award to the Sussex Experimental Particle Physics (EPP) group, funded by the the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), was announced recently. STFC's total contribution to Sussex on this grant is in excess of £1.8M. Dr Antonella De Santo is the Principal Investigator on the grant, which funds the ongoing EPP research programme, and in particular the group's effort on the ATLAS, nEDM and SNO+ experiments. The grant supports EPP academic effort, five post-doctoral-level researchers, one senior technician, as well as other technical staff and computing support. It also provides funding for some of the hardware and travel costs incurred by the EPP group.
