As part of its Programmatic Review, the UK funding agency STFC 
seeks input from facility users on science and facility priorities,
via a questionnaire on:

	Deadline 5 September

I would like to encourage all ING users (not just those from the UK) 
to respond. It's important that ING features prominently in the 
responses, in order to confirm that ING's strategy for the future meets 
the community's interests. ING, as a facility operator, will also be 
submitting input to the review.

We are very grateful for the support you have given in the past to
continued involvement of the UK in the ING, which contributed greatly 
to the May 2012 decision by STFC Council to extend funding of 
this facility.

Please feel free to write to me if you have specific comments or 
questions. You can also write to the members of the ING Science Advisory
Committee (
to provide your views, priorities and feedback.

Many thanks in advance,

Marc Balcells
Director ING
