The Kick-off Meeting of MOST project “High Energy Circular Electron Positron Collider Key Technology Research and Validation” was held in IHEP (2018-11-30)
On Nov. 28, the Kick-off meeting of the ministry of science and technology (MOST) National Key R&D Plan project “High Energy Circular Electron Positron Collider Key Technology Research and Validation” was held in IHEP. This is the second CEPC project supported by MSOT, which marks the beginning of key technical breakthrough stage for CEPC's research and development.
Academician Yifang Wang, director of IHEP, attended the kick-off meeting and made a welcome speech. The expert committee, which included Prof. Nu Xu, Prof. Hongwei Zhao, Prof. Qiuliang Wang, Prof. Yuanning Gao, Prof. Chuanxiang Tang, Prof. Junguang Lv, Prof. Jin Li, and Prof. Youjin Yuan, was invited to attend the meeting. The meeting was chaired by Nu Xu, a professor from the institute of modern physics, CAS. The director of the high technology research and development center of MOST Hongshan Mo attended the meeting and made a speech on the importance of the project, the innovation and implementation plan of the project, the communication with relevant institutions and the enhancement of science outreach.
In the meeting, the project leader Joao Guimaraes da Costa, reported the overall situation and the implementation plan of the project. The project was led by IHEP, and was jointly implemented by the University of Science and Technology of China, Shandong University, Nanjing University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Northwest Polytechnic University. The project received the total fund of 31.45 Million yuan, and the implementation period was from May 2018 to April 2023, with a period of five years. professor Yunlong Chi, associate professor Zhijun Liang and associate professor Boxiang Yu respectively reported the implementation plans of three tasks in the project, namely CEPC accelerator, silicon tracking detector and hadronic calorimeter.
The expert committee listened to the implementation reports of the project and tasks, discussed and put forward the constructive opinions and suggestions.
