Engineering Appointment to Cockcroft Institute
Story supplied by LU Press Office
Engineering's Dr Rebecca Seviour was one of four appointments announced this week to the Cockcroft Institute - a major new international centre dedicated to accelerator science, which is unlocking the structure of matter and the origin of the Universe.
The Cockcroft Institute, based in Daresbury International Science Park, is an international centre for research and development in Accelerator Science and Technology. It is a joint venture involving the Universities of Lancaster, Liverpool, and Manchester, the Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (PPARC), the Council for the Central Laboratory of the Research Councils (CCLRC), and the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA).
The NWDA is providing a purpose-built building in the Daresbury International Science Park, and today the final stage, the internal fit-out of the building, began on schedule ready for occupation by Institute staff in spring 2006.
Steven Broomhead, NWDA Chief Executive, said: "The appointment of key academics will ensure the success of Cockcroft Institute and guarantee its position as a leading centre for Accelerator Science. I am delighted to announce that this unique centre will be fully operational by Spring 2006. Progress to date has resulted from a culmination of work by key partners who have secured this project against strong competition. I have no doubt that its presence will cement the Northwest's impressive reputation as a leading region for scientific research and development."
