Akira Yamamoto | 26 May 2011As part of Technical Design Phase 2, the Global Design Effort has been working towards more realistic and cost-effective industrialisation models for the production of superconducting radiofrequency cavities and cryomodules, as these are primary cost drivers in the ILC construction estimate. To that end, they have been organising a series of visit to cavity and material manufacturers and workshops. The next one is in July 2011 in Chicago, US.

Jean-Pierre Delahaye | 31 March 2011Is it possible to build a strong, long-term and globally coordinated accelerator R&D programme? Most probably, and Jean-Pierre Delahaye wishes to. In this week’s director’s corner, he explains how, referring to a review of new accelerator projects he presented at ICHEP2010 conference in Paris last year.
