Work Plan

The CREMLIN implementation scheme follows a two way approach:

(i) For each of the five Russian megascience projects CREMLIN provides a dedicated work package. These are the five thematic work packages.

(ii) Two horizontal work packages are devoted to cross-topic aims and activities: WP2 is devoted to establish an exchange platform, and WP8 is devoted to communication and dissemination activities as well as to education & training and aspects of innovation, technology transfer and industrial use around the megascience projects. The Russian IGNITOR project will be treated within WP2 “Exchange platform”.

The two-way approach of CREMLIN is an appropriate structure to address both challenges: In the individual thematic work packages the scientific needs and areas of cooperation interest and priorities of each Russian megascience project will be identified, both with a Russian and a European perspective. The project knowledge, expert insights and best practices that are generated across the five thematic work packages are synthesized in a joint exchange platform with supportive and facilitating character within the project to enable synergies, mutual learning processes and to develop further the cooperation strands and pathways with the megascience projects.

The set-up and the work package structure may be visualized like this:

 

Work Packages

Work Package 1

A successful project implementation relies on reliable structures and processes designed to coordinate and facilitate all project activities according to the project goals. This work package will ensure the proper implementation of the project management including quality assurance, progress reporting and financial controlling mechanisms

Work Package 2

- ensure horizontal integration of the thematic work packages on cross-topical issues
- promote informal and formal networking across scientific communities
- develop models of access, data sharing and user policies of the research infrastructures for international users

Work Package 3

Enhanced cooperation and exchange of know-how on designing and constructing detector and accelerator components is a very important objective for the realization of the NICA and FAIR accelerator complexes. This work package will strengthen this cooperation by providing support in coordination, reviewing and training. Furthermore it will address the aspects of internationalization at JINR.

Work Package 4

This work package has three main objectives:
- to identify the research interests and needs of EU and Russian partners in the PIK project
- to develop guide lines for a general instrumentation concept for the PIK reactor in cooperation with international partners
- to help in the development of a state-of-the-art supporting structures at the PIK reactor
