5 Accelerator Applications  >30000 accelerators already in use around the World  Annual sales: >$3.5B  Annual product, etc, sales: >$0.5T  Fit into a few broad categories: Energy Environment Healthcare Industry Security and defence Research Most of the World’s accelerators

6 Accelerator Applications  >30000 accelerators already in use around the World  Annual sales: >$3.5B  Annual product, etc, sales: >$0.5T  Fit into a few broad categories: Energy Environment Healthcare Industry Security and defence Research See:

7 WP4: Accelerator Applications  First step: review of state of the art – on-going  Second step: selection of applications to focus on – on-going  Third step - further study: - topical workshops - meetings, etc  Third step’ – look at new applications  Outputs: - Policy document - Collaborations for further work - H2020 proposals - Improved or new applications  We welcome all input to this work Objectives: - look for existing applications that could benefit from accelerators developed for research - look for new applications

8 Objectives  Task 1: Coordination - Rob Edgecock (Huddersfield & STFC)  Task 2: Low energy accelerators – Marco Cavenago (INFN)  Task 3: Intermediate energy proton and ion accelerators – Marco Schippers (PSI)  Task 4: High beam power proton and ion accelerators – Alessandra Lombardi (CERN)  Task 5: High beam power targets – Hywel Owen (Manchester)  Website at:  53 partners: - 35 not EuCARD2 partners - 19 industry/users

9 First workshops  Modern hadron therapy gantry developments – UMAN & PSI - 16 th -17 th January Cockcroft, UK - https://eventbooking.stfc.ac.uk/news-events/modern-hadron-therapy-gantry-developments-187 https://eventbooking.stfc.ac.uk/news-events/modern-hadron-therapy-gantry-developments-187  Accelerators for accelerator driven systems - CERN - 20 th -21 st March CERN - organised jointly with MAX - https://indico.cern.ch/event/300409/overviewhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/300409/overview  Accelerator based neutron production (ABNP2014) - INFN - 14 th -15 th April Legnaro - BNCT, radioisotope production, security, etc - https://agenda.infn.it/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=7214https://agenda.infn.it/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=7214

11 First workshops  Modern hadron therapy gantry developments – UMAN & PSI - 16 th -17 th January Cockcroft, UK - https://eventbooking.stfc.ac.uk/news-events/modern-hadron-therapy-gantry-developments-187 https://eventbooking.stfc.ac.uk/news-events/modern-hadron-therapy-gantry-developments-187  Accelerators for accelerator driven systems - CERN - 20 th -21 st March CERN - organised jointly with MAX - https://indico.cern.ch/event/300409/overviewhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/300409/overview  Accelerator based neutron production (ABNP2014) - INFN - 14 th -15 th April Legnaro - BNCT, radioisotope production, security, etc - https://agenda.infn.it/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=7214https://agenda.infn.it/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=7214

12 Further planned workshops  Electron beams for industrial and environmental applications – HUD - 24 th -25 th September Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, Warsaw  Compact/cheap muon sources – HUD - Summer/Autumn Huddersfield - Muons for muCT, muSR and security  Compact accelerators for radioisotope production - UMAN - Later Manchester  Other suggestions are very welcome!  Funding is available to help with the organisation

13 EuCARD2 Annual Meeting  19 th -21 st May in DESY  Plan a talk on: Design of the linear accelerator for the MYRRHA project  Speaker to be identified  WP4 annual meeting on 21 st May  All welcome!

14 Policy document Grew out of a symposium in 2009, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, on the uses and needs of accelerators for the discovery science, energy and environment, defense and security, industrial, and medical communities. See the website at:

15 Policy document  Plan to do the same for Europe  Our role will be to enable this, rather than do it  Draft aim: document the uses and importance of accelerators in Europe and where improvements are possible. It will also study applications which are new or currently under development. The aim will be to deliver a document which can be presented to European policy makers and funding agencies to demonstrate the potential of particle accelerators and the importance of continuing their development.  Needs a different title, suggestions welcome!  Funding available for a kick-off meeting - August/September?  ……and for follow up meetings  Your help and input are essential to make this work

16 Conclusions  EuCARD2 project: building & expanding on earlier projects  Accelerator Applications Network: - new to EuCARD2  Building on a lot of work already done  Aim#1: use RI technology to improve some applications  Via topical workshops, meetings, etc  Aim#2: policy document  Via kick-off meeting and further workshops  For further information: - speak to Alessandra or me see
