Community Meeting

Lecture Theatre 117

Physics West 1st Floor

Birmingham University
Purpose: * take stock of where we are with ‘managed withdrawal’ from relevant projects * update ourselves on global project/facility status and developments * discuss our input into STFC’s ‘science roadmap’ * discuss our future strategy given possibly tight funding scenarios The format of the meeting will be a series of short update talks, with discussion time, followed by a longer general discussion. Discussion questions: - How should we progress the field in the UK given the funding landscape post-prioritisation? Should we be seeking in the medium/long term to reinstate funding to specific areas which lost out in the prioritisation, or should we follow the broad direction it set until the science cases change? - How should our roadmap evolve in light of political / scientific changes over the past year? - How should the community respond to a scenario of still further cuts to the field? In that event, how would we wish such cuts to be implemented? EVO connection details.
