The update of EU Strategy for particle physics adopted by CERN Council

Six years after its first definition in 2006, the European strategy for particle physics was updated so as to take into account the progress made so far and the evolution of theglobal particle physics landscape.

From the editors

In this spring issue, we look at developments towards higher luminosity and higher energy colliders.



Introducing CRISP Accelerator Topic for Synergies in Physics


The EU funded CRISP project (The Cluster of Research Infrastructures for Synergies in Physics) started on 1st October 2011 and runs for 3 years.
