Tunnel vision

| 13 June 2013 During the ECFA LC2013 workshop that took place a the end of May at DESY in Hamburg, the LC management, civil engineering and machine-detector interface experts visited the tunnel of the future European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser XFEL - a week before construction was officially finished. DESY and the European XFEL celebrated the completion of the construction work with a ceremony, atmospheric lights and music in the new tunnel. Watch the slideshow.

The fruits of industry

| 11 August 2011 The R&D of industry is as vital to the ILC project as research performed in the laboratory. The Global Design Effort has formed close relationships with multiple industry vendors, fostering innovation and reducing costs. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

Preparing for SCRF industrialisation

| 3 March 2011 Developing a realistic plan for cost-effective production of the large number of ILC superconducting cavities and cryomodules is perhaps our most challenging task in preparing for the Technical Design Report. A new round of visits to industry is aimed at informing that effort. Category: Uncategorized | Tagged: , , ,

Project Managers’ World Tour

| 25 October 2007 I am currently waiting to get on a plane to fly to the Fermilab Global Design Effort meeting, where we will finally say goodbye to the Reference Design phase, and formally begin the new Engineering Design (ED) phase for the ILC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Kicking off a new phase

| 20 September 2007 Since their appointment in May, the three Global Design Effort Project Managers have been busy scheduling and planning the Engineering Design Report kick-off meetings. Since mid-August they have been touring the world for these meetings. Their purpose is, of course, to kick-start the engineering design phase of the International Linear Collider. During one of these recent meetings, from 10-14 September, the members of the ILC community gathered at KEK to discuss conventional facilities and siting, cryomodules and cryogenics.
