 Project objective

To attract the brightest minds and host outstanding research projects, facilities like the European Organisation for Nuclear Research CERN or the currently constructed European Spallation Source ESS are key. Experimental setups use cutting edge technology and process enormous amounts of data to reveal new discoveries. Infrastructures as detectors and computing centers are work horses but cannot operate without readout systems with high-end electronics. The goal of this project is to develop general readout electronics for cross-sectoral application. This approach overcomes the shortcoming that most experiments have to develop readout systems on their own and allows groups with little knowledge and capabilities in electronics to build world-leading experiments. The successful and well suited Scalable Readout System with the VMM chip, implemented by the candidate at CERN within the Horizon2020 projects AIDA2020 and BrightnESS as a prototype, will be transferred to the host institute. Indispensable knowledge on instrumentation and involvement in future experiments is provided in return. Upcoming European R&D projects and experiments across disciplines like particle and nuclear physics at CERN, neutron science at ESS, medical instrumentation as well as groups in the USA, China, Russia and Japan intend to use the final system. With a professor as experienced supervisor, the outstanding research infrastructure at the host institute and a secondment in a company, the system will be completed and commercialised. The implementation in world-leading experiments will be supported and results disseminated to scientific communities and general public. The project strengthens the European research infrastructure and demonstrates its capabilities globally. It is in line with the European Strategy for Particle Physics, ESS and other users' timelines. In addition, training on teaching, management and supervision will boost the applicant's career in direction of an independent group.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "GENEL" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
