STFC is currently undertaking a strategic review of its Accelerator Programme.
Accelerator science is integral to STFC’s mission, and serves to underpin the organisation’s functions. A strategic approach is required to ensure that the UK maintains its international position in accelerator science, and to position it to take timely decisions and influence investment both in the UK and internationally. The 2017 Accelerator Strategic Review aims to provide an understanding of where future investment and resource should be targeted, taking into account the enabling technologies and synergies.
One of the themes of the review is Light Sources, which includes FELs.
Details of the review and how to input into the development of the roadmaps (deadline of 2 August 2017) or can be found here.
