About

The collaboration between European Technological Facilities and Industry has been seminal for the realization of unprecedented scientific endeavors, like the LHC, EU-XFEL, ESS and ITER, that have recently projected Europe to an undisputed position of worldwide leadership. The AMICI H2020 project is charged by the European Commission with the challenging task of building the conditions for consolidating and exploiting such collaboration to strengthen the capabilities of European companies to compete on the global market, not only as qualified suppliers of components for accelerators and big superconductor magnets, but also in the development of innovative applications in advanced sectors such as healthcare and space.

    The AMICI working group on innovation is conducting an industry survey.

    This survey is open to companies in the accelerator and magnet field. Your participation will be highly valuable:
    ◦ Your answers will help us analyse good practices and barriers to effective engagement of the European Technological Facilities in collaborating with industry for the development of commercial products and services that may benefit the society at large.
    ◦ Your input will be used to define a new sustainable collaboration model and may serve as a basis for collaborative programmes to be supported by the European Commission.
    ◦ You will receive a report detailing the outcomes of the survey.

    INAUGURATION OF A NEW WORKING GROUP IN THE EUROPEAN COMMITTEE FOR STANDARDIZATION (CEN).

    CEN The inauguration of a new working group in the European Committee for standardization (cen) took place at the DIN secretariat in BERLIN on July 25, 2017. Within the technical committee CEN/TC 268, the new working group CEN/TC 268/WG 6 is focused on Specific helium technology applications. The working group held the kick-off meeting for working out a European Standard on Helium cryostats – protection against excessive pressure. This activity is linked to the AMICI work package 5.3: Harmonisation – Cryogenic safety procedures. The meeting was attended by 15 experts from 5 countries. The next meeting is scheduled for October 19, 2017.
