University of Belgrade to participate in CERN’s project Future Circular Collider

The University of Belgrade has signed a memorandum of understanding with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) regarding its participation in the Feasibility Study related to the major scientific and technological project called Future Circular Collider (FCC).

The Memorandum of Understanding aims to create opportunities for the University of Belgrade and scientific institutions in Serbia to be a part of what is, as stated in the press release, the largest international scientific and technological project so far.

The memorandum was signed today at the CERN premises in Geneva by University Rector Vladan Đokić and the head of the Future Circular Collider study, Michael Benedict. A similar agreement was concluded with several large scientific institutes and universities worldwide.

“We hope that there will be an opportunity not only for researchers and engineers but also for successful Serbian companies to join this ambitious project”, the Belgrade University rector, Vladan Đokić, said on the occasion.

The Future Circular Collider (FCC) study is developing designs for a new research infrastructure to host the next generation of higher-performance particle colliders to extend the research currently being conducted at the LHC, once the High-Luminosity phase (HL-LHC) reaches its conclusion in around 2040.

The goal of the FCC is to push the energy and intensity frontiers of particle colliders, to reach collision energies of 100 TeV, in the search for new physics.

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the largest elementary particle research facility, was founded in 1954. In 2019, Serbia became its 23rd full-fledged member.
