Oct 17 Quasi final agenda posted http://bene.web.cern.ch/bene/BENE07Agenda.pdf
Oct 15, 07 The special ESGARD meeting with the Directors of EU HEP labs did take place today. The new general coordinators were appointed and the final guidelines for the CARE NEXT proposal were defined. The discussion is scheduled at CARE07 in the afternoon of Oct 31.
CARE07 will be discussing the CARE-Next proposal in his quasi final state, after the scrutiny of the Directors of EU HEP labs that will meet mid October.
BENE07 will be discussing 1) -our own proposals, within CARE-Next, of new R&D, networking and other activities of interest for accelerator neutrinos beams.
2) -our own proposals, within another proposal of a HEP Detector IA , of similar activities in the sector of neutrino detectors
the proposal in preparation of “CARE-Next”, a new FP7 Integrating Activity on
Coordinated Accelerator R&D in
now in progress. It ranked first among the DS proposals approved and the EC contribution will be 4 M€, 80% of our request, higher than any other project. A
Draft Grant Agreement should be ready in November. The Study will be 4 years long and start 1st February 2008. A first governing board meeting on 5th February
should get everything started.
This is in line with the CERN Council Strategy Document that “promoted” a future EU neutrino facility to the rank of an emerging research infrastructure, aspiring
Neutrino Factory Design Study is taking shape. Other major highlight was the renewed effort at Fermilab on both proton driver (Project X) & muon R&D.
