Spain and Japan strengthen industrial collaboration toward the ILC

| 26 May 2016 A Spanish Japanese Collaboration in industry and science? Yes, a collaboration which just took another important step to strengthen this relationship at May 13th at the Collaboration Opportunities on Fusion and Accelerator Technologies and Projects workshop at the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo. Tohru Takahshi from Hiroshima University attended this workshop and offers his impressions about the actual developments and relations between Japan and Spain. In his short review of this event he included many details about the speakers, the Spanish Japanese History and of course a short look in further events. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Future colliders

| 29 October 2015 Frank words from the Americas Regional Director Harry Weerts: decisions about global science projects aren’t taken by scientists. They are taken by politicians. The world’s roadmaps for the future of particle physics may recommend a linear collider in Japan, but it also needs to find its way into the world’s science budgets in order to proceed.

New ILC website launched in Japan

| 14 June 2012 Particle cartoons, enticing images, animations and lots and lots of information – that’s what a new website dedicated to the ILC in Japan offers its visitors to help them learn more about the ILC and particle physics. Created by the Advanced Accelerator Association promoting science and technology, it went live on Monday this week. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

ILC beyond the technical design

| 8 March 2012 Realising a big international project such as International Linear Collider involves many issues beyond finalising the technical design. The Advanced Accelerator Association promoting science and technology, Japan's industry-academia collaboration towards the realisation of the ILC, recently published a report to address such issues.
