ILC expert panel review: hosting is not the problem, says Shoji Asai

| 22 March 2022 The recent recommendations to Japan’s science ministry MEXT on the ILC by an expert panel caused worry and confusion in the ILC community. Some even thought it was the project’s death sentence. Shoji Asai, chair of ILC-Japan, a new promoting body for the International Linear Collider project, explains the report and KEK’s reaction to it. He took part in the expert panel to explain. He says it’s not as bad as it may seem, because we can forward some technical parts of ILC, and it tries to move the discussions of the cost-sharing. But researchers need to work together and do their part to make it happen. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

ILC Preparatory Laboratory proposal released

| 1 June 2021 After ten months of work, the ILC International Development Team, mandated to prepare the ILC Preparatory Laboratory, is reaching the first milestone with the release of a proposal which outlines the organisational framework, an implementation model and work plan of the Pre-lab. Many scientists contributed to this effort, showing the great interest of the community in the ILC project. A signal from the Japanese government towards indicating its interest in hosting the ILC and supporting the Pre-lab would now be required for gaining stronger engagement of interested laboratories around the world.
