Return to Dubna

| 11 December 2014 Russia's Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in is an international organisation with a long and wide scientific programme, embracing both nuclear and particle physics. Brian Foster, European Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration embracing both nuclear and particle physics. Brian Foster, European Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration visited the lab for the third time and met with the directorate, addressing options for exploring Russian engagement in possible future ILC construction, for which the lab has a lively interest.

Dishing out experience

| 9 January 2014 The ILC will be a truly global scientific undertaking when it’s built – but it’s not the only one. The ALMA observatory in Chile for example, built to tell us more about how stars and planets are formed, is run by a collaboration that is distributed around the world. LCC Director Lyn Evans was invited on a field trip to three observatories in Chile as a member of a visiting committee set up by the European Southern Observatory ESO and learned a lot about travel in South America, commissioning telescopes and running large science projects.

From Symmetry Magazine: Global from the get-go?

10 March 2011 Experiments in particle physics have decades of experience as thoroughly international collaborations. Can the giant accelerators that power these experiments make the leap to go global as well? The global physics community has kept the lessons of the Superconducting Super Collider and the LHC in mind while planning for the next international accelerator project. This time, countries are working together from the beginning and physicists have already demonstrated this attitude in developing future accelerators. Read more in Symmetry Magazine.

The next step towards the ILC – building a truly global team

| 27 March 2008 It has been roughly a year since the completion of the Reference Design Report (RDR) and the creation of a project-oriented design effort. It is reasonable, therefore, to look broadly over our accomplishments and the direction in which we are heading. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

A plug-compatible approach toward a truly efficient international collaboration

| 28 February 2008 It has been eight months since I joined the ILC team as a project manager. I have been learning a lot and am impressed with research and development works achieved and with the knowledge and expertise each scientist or engineer has. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
