This particle physics network explores the physics discovery
potential at the Large Hadron Collider, LHC. The aim is to pull together
Nordic particle physicists, both theorists and experimentalists, in
order to seed new physics ideas, and to study the experimental
signatures of new physics. LHC is the main particle physics commitment
in the Nordic countries for the next decade, and all the experimental
groups are involved in the LHC experiments.
With this network we create new constellations between the Nordic
experimental and theoretical particle physicists for exploiting the LHC.
By enhancing the know-how among the Nordic physicists for discovery
physics at the LHC we will be better prepared for the data analysis and
interpretation right from the beginning of LHC operation at the highly
competitive environment in the physics community.
Through regional co-operation we will greatly enhance
supervision and teaching of research students. The intra-Nordic working
groups would have a better possibility of supervising students and
raising a new generation of physicists, who will exploit the LHC data.
In individual universities there are limited resources for giving
up-to-date courses in this rapidly evolving field the Nordic
network will help in concentrating the resources.
