Funding and networks

Current grants

Research in the CRST is funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC - formerly PPARC), the European Commission, and the Royal Society.

Our group grant is funded through the STFC

  • STFC Consolidated Grant, String Theory, Gauge Theory and Duality, A Brandhuber, DS Berman, M Buican, C Papageorgakis, S Ramgoolam, R Russo, M Shigemori, G Travaglini and C White, 2017-2020. 

This grant has recently been renewed and greatly augmented for the period 2020-2023.

The CRST also coordinates a Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Innovative Training Network of the European Commission: SAGEX "Scattering Amplitudes: from Geometry to Experiment".
