Description

The EuPRAXIA Consortium is preparing a conceptual design for the world’s first multi-GeV plasma-based accelerator with industrial beam quality and dedicated user areas. The project will bridge the gap between successful proof-of-principle experiments and ground-breaking, ultra-compact accelerators. With a smaller size and improved efficiency, plasma-based technologies have the potential to revolutionize the world of particle accelerators multiplying their applications in medicine, industry and fundamental science. EuPRAXIA brings together a consortium of 16 research institutions from five EU member states. The project, coordinated by DESY, is funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. EuPRAXIA has been joined by 24 associated partners.

The retreat should give the consortium the opportunity to work on and discuss the first drafts for the Conceptual Design Report. The aim of the workshop is to exchange on open points and remaining technical questions to develop a common and exact idea of the conceptual design of EuPRAXIA.
