Enhanced European Coordination of Accelerator Research and Development – EuCARD2 – global and local impact



Wide scale, European, infrastructural research projects on accelerator science and technology are under realization since 2003. CARE project was realized during the period 2003/4-2008, and next EuCARD during 2009-2013. Now during 2014-2017 there is successfully continued EuCARD2 – Enhanced European Coordination of Accelerator R&D. European accelerator R&D community prepares next continuation of the EuCARD inside the Horizon 2020. The paper presents the work developments of EuCARD. Several institutions from Poland are participating in EuCARD: NCNR in Świerk, IChTJ, technical Universites in Łódź, Wrocław and Warsaw. Realization of the project during the last 12 years gave numerable and valuable results combined with essential modernization of the European research infrastructures. From the point of view of domestic interests, where we do not have large research infrastructures, the considerable benefits are associated with  the participation of young researchers from Poland – engineers and physicists, in building of the top research infrastructures. Due to such participation, high technologies are developed in several centres in the country. The EuCARD project organizes annual meetings summarizing periodically the R&D advances. The EuCARD AM2015 was held in Barcelona in April.
