Nuclear Structure Committee

Administrative history

In 1964 together with the head of CERN's Nuclear Physics (NP) division, Peter Presiwerk, Torleif Ericson proposed that the Director-General create a Nuclear Structure Committee (NSC). This was set up soon after with Ericson as chairman. The aim of NSC was to discuss and to decide on experimental proposals in the field of nuclear structure research; and to provide some co-ordination between the groups inside and outside of CERN, that took part in the nuclear structure programme at the Synchro-Cyclotron (SC). This committee met only seven time before it merged in 1966 with EmC and was renamed the Physics III Committee.
