International Advisory Committee

The FCC project and the FCCIS EU co-funded project feature the same advisory committee. This committee is an evolution of the FCC Study phase advisory board (see also FCC study phase advisory committee composition

The FCC advisory committee is structured according to different topical domains:

  • Theoretical and experimental physics and experiments
  • Machines
  • Magnets, RF
  • Technologies
  • Civil Engineering, Technical Infrastructure
  • Implementation, planning and economics

The composition of the committee is dynamic and may change in the course of the project. The current composition is displayed in the table below.

Information at Hand


The FCCIS International Advisory Committee (“IAC”) reviews the scientific and technical progress of the Project. It is structured by activity areas (particle accelerator, physics and experiments, technologies, economics and implementation). It advises the Executive Board on the running and the scientific/technical direction of the Project. It provides support and additional expert information to the Project. It submits recommendations to the General Assembly. The IAC links the Project to other activities world-wide that are relevant to the Project and facilitates the dissemination of the Project results at global level to different expert communities.

An IAC will be appointed and steered by the Executive Board. The IAC shall assist and facilitate the decisions made by the General Assembly. The Coordinator will ensure that a non-disclosure agreement is executed between all Parties and each IAC member if required for specific topical matters, which shall be concluded no later than 30 calendar days after their nomination or before any confidential information will be exchanged, whichever date is earlier.

The IAC will regularly (at least once per year) review the Project progress and will write a review and recommendation report. These reports must be provided to the Coordinator directly, and will be distributed to all Consortium. The Coordinator shall write the minutes of the IAC meetings and prepare the implementation of the IAC's suggestions. The chair of the IAC will attend General Assembly meetings as advisor, ex-officio. The PL and the deputy PL attend IAC meetings as ex-officio members. The IAC members may participate in General Assembly meetings upon invitation but shall not have any voting rights.

Preparation of meetings

The chairperson of a Consortium Body shall convene meetings of that Consortium Body.

There is at least one International Advisory Committee meeting per year. A International Advisory Committee meeting can be requested any time upon written request of the Coordinator.

Notification of a meeting

The chairperson of a Consortium Body shall give notice in writing of a meeting to each Member of that Consortium Body as soon as possible and no later than 30 (thirty) calendar days before an ordinary meeting or 15 (fifteen) calendar days before an extraordinary meeting.

Sending of the agenda

The chairperson of a Consortium Body shall prepare and send each Member of that Consortium Body a written (original) agenda no later than 14 (fourteen) calendar days before an ordinary meeting and 10 (ten) calendar days before an extraordinary meeting.

Agenda items

Any agenda item requiring a decision by the Members of a Consortium Body must be identified as such on the agenda.

Any Member of a Consortium Body may add an item to the original agenda by written notification to all of the other Members of that Consortium Body up to 7 (seven) calendar days before the meeting.
