Nuclear Physics Grants Panel

The Nuclear Physics Grants Panel’s role is to:

  • assess and make recommendations to the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Executive for research awards in nuclear physics
  • take account, as appropriate, of any strategic advice provided by STFC
  • provide clear concise feedback to applicants
  • advise the Science Board and Executive as required on all issues relating to research grants, including monitoring the level of funding allocated to grants per round
  • liaise with other bodies as necessary
  • carry out such other tasks associated with peer review as the Executive might require
  • take account, as appropriate, of the recommendations of external reviewers and the conclusion of specialist peer review panels. These may be convened by the Executive
  • advise on consolidated grants, contiguous groups of research requests, or research requests which are judged (on the basis of cost or propriety) to warrant such separate, in-depth assessment.
