An industrial workshop on “Cryogenics in Big Science”, to be held in Paris on April 16 and 17 2024, is organized in the framework of the European Projects I.FASTAIDAinnova and LEAPS-INNOV

The projects support the development of innovative technologies in collaboration with companies all over Europe, in the fields of accelerators, detectors for particle and nuclear physics, and light sources, respectively. The main motivation of the workshop is that continuous and fruitful interactions with industry are fundamental to the activities conducted by the projects, and workshops on specific

At the end of August, AIDAinnova detector scientists travelled to South Africa to organise an Instrumentation School.

INFN Bari invite applications for a 2-years postdoc position at INFN section of Bari, Italy, to work in our group on R&D for a high pressure TPC with optical read-out, in the framework of the AIDAinnova European grant, with the additional possibility to participate in a rich Neutrino Physics programme.

Work Context

The group is active in the field of Gas Detectors R&D, with particular emphasis on MPGDs and Time Projection Chambers (TPC), and participates to major experiments in Neutrino Physics like T2K, Super-Kamiokande (SK) and Hyper-Kamiokande (HK).

In addition, the selected candidate

The LPNHE-Paris laboratory is opening a two-year (extensible to three-year) post-doctoral position on ATLAS. The position can begin as soon as November 1st, 2023 and will focus primarily on the upgrade of the ATLAS Inner Tracker and advanced Silicon Tracker technologies.


The selected candidate will work on two axes:

  • ATLAS Inner Tracker Upgrade: the candidate will work on the construction, test and quality assurance of the modules of the ITk detector for the high-luminosity phase of the LHC.
  • Advanced technologies for silicon trackers: in particular, on themes related to

The school for young scientists on particle detector technologies will take place at Kutaisi International University (KIU) at the University of Wuppertal, Germany, on July 17-28, 2023.

The AIDAinnova second annual meeting will take place in ADEIT and CSIC, Valencia from 24th to 27th April 2023. The event will assemble the 45 beneficiaries and numerous associate partners to discuss the scientific and technical achievements since the 1st Annual meeting on March 2022, as well as the plans for the third year of the project.

The Second annual meeting will consist of parallel meetings of Work Packages, plenary sessions, a Steering Committee and a Governing Board meeting.

The AIDAinnova project participated to the development a roadmap for detector R&D with the goal to maximise the performance of the European near and long-term particle physics programme.

Financed under AIDAinnova’s Blue-Sky programme, the WADAPT project will explore the use of wireless readout to transfer data in detectors.

Composed of a mix of senior and young detector scientists, the project’s publication committee will ensure a well-structured peer-review process and publishing of AIDAinnova documents.

At the first large physics conference to set up in presence, members of the AIDAinnova project played a leading role.
