European Union gives green light for the CREMLINplus project
The aim of the CREMLINplus project is to develop and strengthen scientific cooperation between Russia and the European Union in the field of research infrastructures. CREMLINplus covers five Russian mega-science projects, among which the Novosibirsk Super Charm-Tau factory (SCT). Funding from the European Union, which includes support for all five projects, will amount to 25 million euros, spread over four years.
Institutes from Italy, France and Germany, as well as CERN, will take part in studies for SCT. Various aspects will be covered, such as the development of a software suite for the simulation and optimisaton of the SCT detector, and the design of the inner tracker, the central tracker and the particle identification system. A school on detector technologies will be organised at BINP. The studies for SCT will actively exploit synergies with ongoing work for CLIC and FCC-ee.
CREMLINplus is due to start officially in February 2020.
