Detector R&D “coopetition” between ILC and CLIC

| 15 December 2011 Though the differences between ILC and CLIC detectors are marked, ILC detector concepts have been shown to be valuable for the machine being designed by its competitor-cooperator, the CLIC design study. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,

“Crazy” years await us – or maybe not

| 21 April 2011 Though the road ahead is long, the ILC collaboration has made considerable strides designing the machine and its two detectors, contributing to the advancement of other fields and bringing together a global community. Now we must keep up the energy for the remaining stretch as we fulfil our mandate to deliver its technical design. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , ,
