NuGrid/IReNA/TUNL day

Friday, June 2nd 2023 @ Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory, NC, USA

Our Goals

In the context of our annual NuGrid collaboration meeting, we are hosting a half-day event with nuclear astrophysics talks, experimental and theoretical, open to the wider community. Our goal is to showcase recent results from the NuGrid collaboration and establish further connections and collaborations with interested groups.

This event is supported by IReNA, the International Research Network for Nuclear Astrophysics. IReNA is a US National Science Foundation AccelNet Network of Networks. It connects six interdisciplinary research networks across 17 countries to foster collaboration, complement and enhance research capabilities in the US and abroad, and thus greatly accelerate progress in science.
