The Skyrmion Project is a national programme of strategic importance to the UK funded by an EPSRC Programme grant. The Skyrmion Project unites groups from Cambridge, Oxford, Southampton and Warwick and is led by Durham. At Durham this includes Peter Hatton (Project Director) and Tom Lancaster (Key Challenge Leader), PDRA Murray Wilson, and NSERC Fellow, together with PhD students Max Birch, Thomas Hicken, Luke Turnbull, Sam Moody, Zachary Hawkhead, all looked after by Project administrator Penny Carse. Recently the project was evaluated by a mid-term Review panel of EPSRC chaired by Prof. Sir John Pendry and deemed to be “Internationally Leading”. The Project is funded until 2022.
