UWinnipeg will have a state-of-the-art facility for studying neutrinos

The University of Winnipeg will be partners in building a world-class facility that will allow for the most detailed measurements of neutrino interactions. This is possible thanks to a successful 2020 Canadian Foundation for Innovation Infrastructure Fund (CFI-IF) award of $5.4-million ($27-million total project cost) for the Intermediate Detector for the Hyper-Kamiokande Neutrino Oscillation Experiment (Hyper-K) and Research Manitoba is giving $175,000. UWinnipeg physicist Dr. Blair Jamieson is a co-investigator on this grant.
