Short summary and decisions

  • Discussion with Stefano Petrucci from CAEN about possible participation in SciFiNet as beneficiary. There appears to be a general interest and also familiarity with EU Marie Curie projects. Possible project for a student recruited at CAEN: development and commercialisation of small scale (O(10 cm)) fibre modules, equipped with SiPM and readout electronics for pedagogical and lab/cosmics test purposes. Will be discussed with CAEN management.

  • Hamamatsu Switzerland was informed about the intention to integrate KETEK in the network. They showed understanding and a professional attitude. Option of Hamamatsu as associated partner was also mentioned and will be discussed by them internally. First reaction was however hesitant.

  • It was agreed to include from now on the company KETEK in the SciFiNet communication and meetings. The contact person on the KETEK side will be Tobias Eggert.

  • Associated partners:
    • Barcelona had expressed the wish to be ful l partner of SciFiNet, however they understood the arguments, why this was very dificult. They would like to be considered as associated partner.
    • Kurchatov. Contact is being established to Vladimir Shevchenko.
    • Rio de Janeiro: Antonio supports this option, but we have still to find a convincing case. What's the added value to the network?
    • Heidelberg also expressed interest.
    • The option of having a company as associated partner was discussed. Possibilities would be FACC (Austria) and a German company, with which Aachen has good working relations.

  • Reminder: proposal wrinting course on 5 and 6 Feb (1.5 days) at CERN. Antonio and Christian reigstered.

  • First drafts of the job descriptions (ch. 4.1) were discussed. It was agreed to send all drafts to Christian who will assemble them and circulate a summary document. At this stage it's important to have a rough idea of all jobs in order to avoid duplication and to ensure reasonable linking of activities.

  • First drafts of Institute Capacities tables were discussed (ch. 5.).

  • The following sharing of the max. 15 positions was agreed. Per partner: industry = 1; CERN = 3; all other = 2; ==> Sum = 15.

  • Towards Draft 0 of the proposal: Editing team (Antonio, Christian, Guido and Pascal) will meet on Thu 6 Feb, 14:00 for a brainstorming and editing meeting. Continue on Friday 7 Feb, 9:00.

  • Next meeting: Wed, 12 Feb, 9:00

  • HOMEWORK !!!
    • Send your job descriptions to Christian (asap)
    • Send institute capacities to Christian (less urgent)
    • Following circulation of jobs summary (hopefully still this week) refine your descriptions (avoid duplication, foresee linking and synergies with other jobs). Deadline 6 Feb., in order to include them in the Draft 0 proposal.
