Institutions Participating in NEWS

Loading map...


NEWS offers a unique opportunity to work in a world-class environment of academic and non-academic Partners. All activities are at the frontier cutting-edge of technology in many areas, gravitational wave astronomy and detectors, particle radiation detectors for space and high-intensity accelerator beams, radiation hard and magnetic tolerant analog and digital electronics for space and medical applications, photosensors for high energy physics and medical applications, advanced laser calibration systems, simulations of radiation transport, high- speed computing infrastructures. This context will enhance the knowledge and develop the skills of the researchers and will open superior career prospects in academia and in industry. The secondments at US and Japanese Universities and Laboratories and at the non-academic Partners in Europe will provide a world-class training with open access to a broad area of expertise. Secondments will favour future work opportunities with fellowships or contracts. NEWS will train a new generation of European scientists with a global approach through the exposition to the US and Japan research and industrial environment. NEWS research activities will create new collaborations and reinforce the existing ones between US, Japan and Europe. This will be beneficial to Europe innovation capacity, given the US and Japan leadership in the NEWS research and technological areas. The collaboration will continue after the end of the NEWS project. The expected success of this collaboration between US, Japan and Europe has its roots in the extraordinary success of the collaboration on LIGO/Virgo, Fermi-LAT, and also on the Tevatron experiments, CDF and D0, which have trained generations of European researchers now at top-level positions in research Institutions and private companies. The merging of academic with non-academic partners will be beneficial to the training of the researchers and to reinforce industrial innovation capacity. Secondments at these companies will be an opportunity for hands-on training.
