PRISMA+-research programme in neutrino physics further expanded
Neutrino research is an important focus of the PRISMA + Cluster of Excellence at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU): Mainz researchers are involved in many large-scale international experiments at the South Pole, in Italy and in China. Now, JGU and the Fermilab Prof. Dr. Alfons Weber appointed as the new W3 professor. The proven neutrino expert is moving from the renowned Oxford University to Mainz and will further strengthen the neutrino research program. His focus is on promoting German participation in the next major neutrino experiment, the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) at the Fermilab near Chicago.
