The Research Facility 2.0 research project was launched in the beginning of 2024. On 22th and 23th of Janury the international project partners got to know each other better at an initial kick-off meeting.
The common goal: to make large-scale research facilities such as particle accelerators more sustainable. The focus is on developing innovative component and system solutions to improve energy use.

The RF 2.0 project partners

Five of Europe's largest particle accelerators form the backbone of the project:

They work together with various innovative, international technology companies:

The project is coordinated by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) with the participation of two of the largest experimental research infrastructures:

The project is supported by the EREA European Research Executive Agency as part of the HORIZON-INFRA-2023-TECH-01-01 program

What happens next in the RF 2.0 project?

The project will run for 3 years.

In the first step, the project partners will determine which technologies and system adaptations are the most promising candidates for increasing the efficiency of accelerators so that these can then be investigated in more detail.

Various milestones are targeted by the end of 2026, which include not only theoretical calculations but also practical demonstrations at the participating accelerator research facilities.
