ILC R&D plan updated

| 2 September 2010 [...] For the technical part, especially with the limited resources we have available, we have defined a prioritised R&D programme, and a design effort focused on cost, performance and risk optimisation. This programme is main subject matter of the newly released R&D Plan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

ILC R&D plan updated

| 5 March 2009 We characterise the present period of the Global Design Effort activities as a four-year programme to prepare ourselves to be ready to propose a well conceived ILC construction project to collaborating governments by around 2012. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Progress on our Technical Design Phase goals

| 26 November 2008 Last week several hundred scientists and engineers gathered at the new Forum Event Center of the University of Illinois at Chicago for LCWS 08 and ILC 08. Once per year the Global Design Effort hosts a plenary meeting to which the entire community is invited to hear progress, plans and general presentations, and for 2008 this meeting was ILC08.

The value of science

| 24 April 2008 What is your science worth? A question I have recently heard raised during many over-coffee discussions. The question is of course rhetorical: none of us can really answer it. But the fact that it is being asked at all is part of a reaction to the GDE management's policy to make the cost of the project a central focus of the Technical Design Phase.

Implementing “internal” reviews for the ILC Technical Design Phase

| 10 April 2008 Last week, the new Accelerator Advisory Panel (AAP) was introduced in NewsLine. This week, I follow up with a description of its role and why I believe it will improve the quality of our R&D and design efforts. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

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: , , ,
