Kolkata institute inks accord with CERN

26 Aug 2011 Kolkata - Leading institute for basic research and training in physical and biophysical sciences, Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP), has signed a collaboration agreement with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).

The agreement between the two institution would establish an operational framework for collaboration on scientific projects of common interests that will include the ALICE and CMS experiments at the much talked about Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the ISOLDE facility for experiments with radioactive nuclear beams and Grid computing.

Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Director General, CERN and Milan K. Sanyal, Director, Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP) signed the 'collaboration agreement' between the two institutes on August 26, 2011.

"The agreement between the two institution will establish an operational framework for collaboration on scientific projects of common interests, including but not limited to the ALICE and CMS experiments at the much talked about Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the ISOLDE facility for experiments with radioactive nuclear beams and Grid computing", Milan K. Sanyal, Director, Saha Institute of Nuclear Science (SINP) stated.

"Saha Institute is the only institute from India to participate in so many experiments with CERN and we want to expand it", Milan Sanyal stated.

"I am extremely resourced to sign this agreement between Saha Institute and CERN. This will be one of the decisive steps to get India closer to CERN. I hope this will be a big step forward", Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Director General, CERN, stated.

He also mentioned it clearly during his speech that LHC will not cause any harm to the environment. Speaking on the need of LHC he stated: "LHC will tell us where is the new physics and what might be new physics."

"The next step will be the another machine. Depending on the results of LHC it could go to higher energy photon collider or the electron-photon collider", he stated.
