The DUNE Science Collaboration (collaboration list) is currently made up of over 950 scientists from 162 institutions in 30 countries. The collaboration works closely with the LBNF Project to ensure the coordinated development of facilities and detectors that will enable the ambitious physics program.

DUNE is led by two co-spokespersons, André Rubbia, Professor of Physics at ETH Zurich and Mark Thomson, Professor of Physics at University of Cambridge.

Eric James, Scientist at Fermilab, is Technical Coordinator and heads the DUNE Technical Board.  Steve Kettel, Physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory, is the DUNE International Project Manager.

Each participating institution is represented on the DUNE Institutional Board, which is chaired by Bob Wilson, Professor of Physics at Colorado State University.

A structure of working groups, task forces, boards and committees has been established to advance work in each of the key areas of physics research, in development of the detectors and prototypes and for coordination of interfaces among these areas and between DUNE and LBNF. Leadership and membership of these groups reflect DUNE’s commitment to fully integrating the participating institutions from around the world into the planning and execution of the collaboration’s activities and to provide roles for younger members.
