Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

The paper reviews recent trends in the evaluation of E U regional policy. It begins by discussing recent experience in evaluating Structural Fund operations and then outlines how the regulatory environment has been changing. Lastly, the paper reflects on the latest developments with respect to ex ante appraisal and some of the issues that have emerged from the 1994 appraisal of regional development programmes.
