Joint technology development around SCT and future lepton colliders activities

The joint technology development around SCT and future lepton colliders community has made great progress. A series of workshops and meetings were held and the SCT Partnership was launched.

Workshop on future Super c-tau factories (15.-17. November 2021)

This event attracted about 150 participants from over the world (157 registered participants on indico). Statuses of the Russian and Chinese projects of super charm-tau factories were discussed in great detail, including updates on the collider and detector projects, software development physics program of the experiments. High quality of contributions and large number of participants show persistent interest of the high energy physics community to future experiments on super charm-tau factories.


The kick-off meeting of the SCT Partnership (18. November 2021)

Ten scientific groups signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) and became the founding partners of the proto-collaboration (the Partnership) around the SCT experiment:

  • Justus-Liebig-Universität (JLU) Gießen
  • Novosibirsk State University (NSU)
  • Moscow State University Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP MSU)
  • Novosibirsk State Technical University (NSTU)
  • Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (BINP)
  • Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI, Moscow)
  • Higher School of Economics (HSE, Moscow)
  • INRP VNIIEF, Sarov
  • JINR, International
  • Cinvestav, Mexico

During the kick-off meeting all groups made a brief presentation and introduced themselves.

The framework of the SCT Partnership is defined in a Memorandum of Partnership (MoP).
The Partnership has a minimal formal structure that includes:

  • The SCT Partnership Institutional Board (IB)
  • The Russian and International SCT Partnership Spokespersons

The 1st SCT Partnership Institutional Board meeting was held on 18. November 2021.
