EP department has launched the preparation of a strategic R&D programme on technologies for future experiments. This initiative, which spans an initial 5-years period from 2020 onwards, covers detector hardware, electronics, software and detector magnets for new experiments and detector upgrades beyond LHC phase II.
In two public workshops held in 2018, the work programme was shaped in a bottom-up process which took into account the input and feedback of many colleagues from the HEP community. Many developments are carried out in cooperation with external groups. The work programme is documented in a detailed R&D report. A 10-pages summary was submitted as input to the European Strategy Group.
The funding of the programme has been clarified and the concrete planning for its implementation is starting. The gradual start of the actual R&D activities is foreseen for January 2020.
