Objectives
The objective of this work package is to strengthen the scientific and technical cooperation between PIK and European neutron research infrastructures of mutual interest to European and Russian researchers.
WP3 will achieve its objective by undertaking research and activities in the following key areas:

  • Joint development of advanced cold neutron sources
  • Joint development of the instrumentation concept for reactor PIK
  • Establish international bodies at PIK
  • Development of the neutron user-based education platform and a user system
  • Support strategic coordination of PIK on the whole
