General Information
This CREMLINplus project is about European-Russian scientific and technical collaboration in the field of research infrastructures (RI). It takes up and addresses all recommendations that have been worked out in close European-Russian collaboration within three years of the Horizon 2020 project CREMLIN.
CREMLINplus is a voluminous project, a grand endeavour, setting out to fully implement jointly elaborated European-Russian collaboration roadmaps and to ensure that the framework conditions will be improved and continually harmonized.
The project will operate in two directions, following two main strategic goals:
(1) CREMLINplus will strongly advance the five Russian megascience projects in close European-Russian collaboration. This objective refers to the technical preparation of the megascience projects for European and international utilisation. The project will allow European-Russian collaborative top teams to develop and deliver finest, novel cutting-edge
technologies for both the Russian megascience projects and their European RI counterparts.
(2) CREMLINplus will prepare a defined set of Russian research infrastructures, hosted at eleven laboratories, for not only Russian, but also European and international access and utilisation. For this purpose, suitable framework conditions for opening and accessing these Russian facilities will be developed and implemented. A comprehensive base of knowledge and expertise for RI managers and scientists at various levels will be created.
The 35 European and Russian participants of the project have come together to build the broad and balanced consortium, connected through a history of trustful collaboration. They are the relevant entities in the domain of research infrastructures in Europe and in Russia, and thus provide the necessary strength, commitment and power to implement the project plan.
Hereon’s main task is to contribute to strengthening the scientific and technical cooperation between the neutron source PIK in Gatchina near St. Petersburg and European neutron research infrastructures in mutual interests of European and Russian researches.
