1. General news and facts (R. Garoby)

  • During nufact'08 the latest results from the official HARP analysis group seem to indicate that at 5 GeV there is a good efficiency for pion production, contrary to many earlier claims which were pointing at much higher energies.
  • The Cockroft Institute (UK) is willing to establish a long-term commitment to CERN and a MoU is in preparation. Subjects include work on an RF distribution system and phase/amplitude shifters, which could be covered by Lancaster University (Prof. Carter), Daresbury laboratory is interested in collimation studies for LINAC4/SPL beams. ASTeC (RAL) could be a good partner of synchrotron beam dynamics (also PS2). Once the MoU is signed by both sides, single subjects will be added as "Addenda".
  • The status of FP7 funding was summarised in the recent meeting of the SPL study group.

2. Cost optimisation (W. Weingarten)
