The Heavy Ion Accelerator Facility Endowment Fund, created to give new opportunities to accelerator staff and students, will be launched by the VC Professor Ian Young on Wednesday 7 May at the Department of Nuclear Physics, Research School of Physics and Engineering.
The Heavy Ion Accelerator Facility is one of the Australian National University’s largest pieces of research infrastructure, and is unique in Australia and the region.
The Accelerator Facility supports Australia’s only experimental nuclear physics research and teaching program, as well as a broad spectrum of other research. This includes creating and characterizing innovative materials, optimizing resource and energy exploitation, investigating environmental change, and archaeological and heritage studies.
The vision of the Heavy Ion Accelerator Facility Endowment Fund is to enhance Australia’s place in the global heavy ion accelerator community. This will be achieved through enhancing opportunities for both accelerator staff and the new generation of researchers
- the graduate students - to gain new knowledge and global connections, thus becoming immersed in the international networks in their fields.
