DUNE collaboration

The DUNE collaboration comprises more than 1,400 collaborators from over 200 institutions in over 35 countries plus CERN. The collaboration works closely with the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility project team to ensure the coordinated development of facilities and detectors for the DUNE physics program.

DUNE is led by two scientific spokespersons, Mary Bishai, senior scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory, and Sergio Bertolucci, professor of physics at the University of Bologna in Italy.

Here are the list of participating countries and institutions and the webpage with the contact information for the principal investigators and scientific contacts at each partner institution.

The international DUNE collaboration was formed in 2015 in response to the report of the Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) on the “Strategic Plan for US Particle Physics in the Global Context,” published in 2014, and the recommendations of the European Strategy for Particle Physics in 2013. It was structured following a model that was successfully adopted by the LHC experiments.

Mechanisms to ensure input from and coordination among all of the international funding agencies supporting the collaboration, modeled on the CERN Resource Review Board, have been adopted.
