RTD Activities




The research and technological development Activities are carried out within four Work Packages:


Amongst the infrastructures which constitute TIARA, several specific unique and crucial infrastructures are dedicated and vitally needed to enable the development of R&D for very large projects, possibly leading to the construction of world class accelerator facilities in Europe.


Four such potential facilities have been identified: a future electron-positron collider CLIC, an intense neutrino beam facility, the proposed SuperB factory, and the nuclear physics facility EURISOL. The corresponding critical R&D infrastructures are already needed in the coming 3 years. It is thus natural to use the opportunity of the Preparatory Phase to accelerate their realization and upgrade in a complementary and collaborative way, anticipating partly the implementation of TIARA's objectives. This will be achieved in the work packages, WP6, WP7, WP8 and WP9. The corresponding WPs are strongly connected to WP3 on R&D infrastructures, in which there is no technical work.


The user community will thus also benefit from the strong combined world-class expertise of the consortium and the timely forefront technical developments it can realize.
