HSF-India is a US National Science Foundation (NSF) funded project that began on October 1, 2022. HSF-India aims to join collaborative networks in India to networks in the U.S. and Europe in order to build the international research software collaborations required to reach the science goals of next-generation particle, nuclear and astroparticle physics experiments including the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment at Fermilab, and the Electron Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory. To fully realize their discovery potential a new generation of software algorithms and approaches is required. Building these research software collaborations is challenging and inherently international matching the international nature of the experimental undertakings themselves. HSF-India will provide students, postdocs and early career personnel significant experience in international team science through engagement in a diverse research community.
The HSF-India network of networks aims to extend the growing research software collaborations between physics and computer science researchers in the U.S. and Europe to include researchers in India. By exploiting national capabilities and strengths, an immediate mutual benefit of the international collaboration will be a training network that enables early-career researchers to pursue impactful research software initiatives in ways that advance their careers in experimental data-intensive science. HSF-India will build international collaborative structures which will enable innovation in critical software areas for discovery in particle, nuclear and astroparticle physics and lay the foundations for similar international collaborations across the scientific spectrum. It is intended to be a long-term investment in team science in physics.
