Ambitious 1.9 Billion UK Science Funding Programme is Announced

We now have a bit more detailed (and links) to the recent announcement of the UK science funding by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).

The funding includes support to universities and research facilities for fundamental science, research facilities and technology development in nuclear physics, particle physics, neutrino science, neutron scattering, lasers and light sources, space exploration and astronomy.

Highlights include support for UK participation in global astronomy projects, particle physics experiments at CERN, a neutrino physics project in Japan, a nuclear physics facility in Germany, the search for gravitational waves and exploring whether life has ever been present on Mars.

Still no "highlights" on whether they're coming back to the ILC.
