The 2013 DOE NP Comparative Research Review
The DOE Office of Nuclear Physics (NP) Physics Research Division convened a comparative panel review of university and laboratory research that it supports in the subfields of Heavy Ions, Medium Energy, Nuclear Structure and Nuclear Astrophysics, Nuclear Theory, and Fundamental Symmetries. The panel review sessions took place in May and June of 2013.
The comparative panel reviews of scientific research subfields in the NP Physics Research Division provided independent, expert, peer review comparative evaluations of the competitiveness of supported research activities as part of NP’s continuing effort to ensure the science it supports is of the highest merit, quality, and impact. The outcome provided input essential to NP’s overarching goal of sustaining the most vibrant, high quality portfolio of nuclear science possible within available resources, consistent with program balance and with the strategic vision for US nuclear science developed in partnership with the research community and other stakeholders. The final report is available here. (302KB)
