Gravitational Waves Community Consultation

Closes 15 Aug 2024

Opened 11 Jul 2024


The Roadmap for UK Particle Astrophysics 2022 highlights the strengths and opportunity for the UK Gravitational Waves field, however with future next generation programmes on the horizon it is essential for STFC to develop a plan and where necessary, prioritise, accordingly.   

This light-touch review of the GW research field aims to establish a clear strategy for longer term UK investment over the next five to ten years, and the outputs will feed into the SB prioritisation and PPAN roadmap development. 

As a first step to understand the current landscape, trends and growth of the community, we are inviting the community to provide valuable information that will form the foundations of the review itself. 

Estimated timeline for the production of the review:

*  11th July 2024 - Survey opens
*  15th August 2024 - Survey closes
*  Mid September - Panel produces a draft report
*  October - November - Community meeting to discuss draft report
*  November - anticipated production of the final report

All input is welcome at this stage.  If you have any questions, please get in touch via
