Research Policy

The Objectives of the Institute are to develop a major international presence in research and development in accelerator science and technology with four broad themes:

Electron-positron colliders
Proton and ion accelerators including neutrino beams
Photon sources
Neutron sources

The Institute is establishing long-term international collaborations with accelerator institutes through a visitor programme and through participation in joint projects

Research Groups

The research groups of the Institute cover all the core disciplines of accelerator science and technology by linking university research groups to one or more research topics in The Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (ASTeC) within STFC.
