ARIES is an Integrating Activity project which aims to develop European particle accelerator infrastructures, co-funded under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. : Accelerator Research and Innovation for European Science and Society
ARIES, or Accelerator Research and Innovation for European Science and Society, is an Integrating Activity project dedicated to the research, development and innovation of European particle accelerators and their related infrastructure and technology. The project will run for a duration of four years from May 2017 to April 2021 and is co-funded by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 programme.
Future accelerators will need higher energy and luminosity to allow scientists to continue exploring the fundamental building blocks of the universe. To reach this goal new technologies and materials must first be developed so accelerator infrastructures can cope with the requirements of future research.
Accelerators and their related technologies are used in a variety of different scientific disciplines and have broad applications in fields such as industry, healthcare, energy, environment, security and cultural heritage.
ARIES will combine an innovative programme of R&D with wider involvement and engagement from the scientific community to help ensure the future of accelerators is secured.
