1 Transition 2007 The Cockcroft Institute Swapan Chattopadhyay Inaugural Director Director April 27, 2007

2 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 2 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Change is an opportunity for growth Institutional Personal The Cockcroft Institute

3 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 3 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Guiding Values Intellectual excellence Innovation and creativity Communication and interaction Individual expression as well as a team spirit Obligation on promised deliverables Service to the community via 'contracts' and Values Returned (e.g.national and international deliverables on large projects) The Cockcroft Institute

4 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 4 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Guiding Values (contd.) Foster synergistic collaboration between the institute, universities, laboratories (DL & PR), local economy, industry and NWDA Respecting diversity and promoting/enhancing the quality of work environment via RETENTION and RECRUITMENT Education and outreach Be a positive force of growth for the human enterprise locally, nationally, and globally The Cockcroft Institute

5 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 5 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Guiding Principles of Transition Festina lente No interruption in research programs or working projects Fiscal integrity No lapse in safety No 'orphaned' projects: every project must be owned and accounted for institutionally. The Cockcroft Institute

6 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 6 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY No 'orphaned' individuals: every employee has a mentor and a supervisor who is responsible for her/his personal and professional growth in the framework of institutional integrity Foster communication via integrated location whenever possible Share transition burdens Grow New Initiatives vigorously but with adiabatic adjustment to the entire program The Cockcroft Institute Guiding Principles of Transition (contd)

7 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 7 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Everyone's opinion will be valued and sought!!! CI Administrative Staff is setting up: Individual meetings with groups and departments Meetings with individuals Spontaneous drop-ins are welcome, but remember because of fixed meetings already on the schedule, early morning or late afternoons may be preferable. Check with Liz Kennedy to get an idea. NEED FEEDBACK ON: Already functional fixed meetings e.g. CI Management Meeting, CI Forum, All-hands,….etc. The Cockcroft Institute Guiding Principles of Transition (contd)

8 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 8 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Initial Thoughts ( to be firmed up by a soon-to-be-organized retreat where all parties participate) Existing Key Areas of Competence for further development: High brightness sources and storage rings Energy Recovery (ER) and Recirculating Linacs Linear and nonlinear dynamics and charged particle optics Beam dynamics and electromagnetics in RF linacs RF technology: structures and power sources Free Electron Lasers: dynamics, undulators, design Collider Physics and Particle Detectors Grow in Key Areas for Future Development: Light Optics, Lasers, Photonics and Optronics Ultrafast Processes and Techniques Plasma Physics and Cosmic Acceleration Processes Medical Accelerators for Therapy The Cockcroft Institute

9 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 9 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Special Note on the role of 4GLS : The Institutes role in the 4 GLS, in partnership with ASTeC, the 4 GLS Project Team of Daresbury Lab/STFC and the leading universities and the scientific community, is significant and must grow. This is our opportunity to ensure the establishment of a local engine as our fly-wheel and work horse to sustain and give credibility to our strong accelerator physics presence in the community, local and global. We should take this opportunity to boost our ERL/FEL/SRF/Laser/SR portfolio even further. In the pre-construction era, we should be prepared to provide strong support and leadership in its scientific and technical definition and articulation of the same to the funding agencies and scientific community in order to position 4 GLS firmly on the site for its eventual construction and operation as a truly pioneering novel light source in the world. The Cockcroft Institute Initial Thoughts (contd) ( to be firmed up by a soon-to-be-organized retreat where all parties participate) The Cockcroft Institute

10 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 10 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Accelerator Project Involvements: Light Sources: 4 GLS, ERLP Colliders: LHC,LHC-II,ILC,LHeC, Super-B Other HEP facilities: Neutrino Factory/Muon Collider Possible launch of New Initiatives An Integrated SRF/RF R&D laboratory on site Surface Science Lab A High-Brightness Injector R&D Lab A Laser lab for atomic and molecular beams and plasmas General Theoretical Physics and Beam Astrophysics The Cockcroft Institute Initial Thoughts (contd) ( to be firmed up by a soon-to-be-organized retreat where all parties participate)

11 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 11 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Knowledge Exchange: Example from Jefferson Lab, USA 500 mm travel 300 mm travel Designed and built by Aerospace Corp.

17 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 17 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Cockcroft Institute/NWDA R&D Economic Modeling Purpose:To provide NWDA with a complimentary tool to facilitate understanding of the effects of R&D $s infusion into NW economy. Method:Application of Systems Dynamics 1. Build model based on interactions diagram 2. Test model to verify functionality 3. Explore dynamics by varying assumptions, running model, and studying effects. Caveat:This is NOT to provide The Answer. This IS to build Understanding. Knowledge Exchange The Cockcroft Institute

18 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 18 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Knowledge Exchange 1.What is the threshold for significant* NW economic benefit a.In terms of $s? b.In terms of time? c.Both? 2.How many Grants/Centers are needed for NW econ benefit? 3.Is there any difference between R&D $s vs other $s? 4.How do you know you are on the right track? 5.Where are the biggest leverage points? *We decide what is significant. Examples of questions that could be examined by Systems Dynamics modeling The Cockcroft Institute

19 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 19 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Retain momentum on the face of dynamic funding scenarios Expand funding base wherever possible BUT within guidelines of corporate philosophy and motto Expand and enhance staff Recruitment and retention More students and postdocs The Cockcroft Institute Everyone's ideas are welcome; my door is always open!

20 SC/st Transition 2007, 4/27/07, Page 20 THE COCKCROFT INSTITUTE of ACCELERATOR SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY Note of Thanks..... We should all publicly thank and acknowledge John Dainton for steering us through this nontrivial transition. We will need Johns advice and counsel in the years ahead. John will remain the Founding Director of CI. I have asked John Dainton to be the Chief Scientist and Counsellor-at-large for CI. I am happy to say that he has accepted my request. Starting April 27, 2007: John Dainton is Chief Scientist and Counsellor-at-large of the Cockcroft Institute. The Cockcroft Institute
