ArDM

Collaboration between the ETH Zurich, Zurich University, University of Granada, CIEMAT, and CERN.
Particle physics experiment based on a ton scale liquid argon detector to search for signals from WIMPs (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles), which are candidates for the Dark Matter in the universe.

ETSEC

The Einstein Telescope (ET) project aims to the realization of a crucial research infrastructure in Europe: a third generation Gravitational Wave (GW) observatory. ET has been supported as Design Study by the European Commision under the Framework Programme 7 (FP7, Grant Agreement 211743). This phase is concluded, and a Conceptual Design Document was released by the original eight partners. Currently a new phase is open addressed to the realization of the ET scientific collaboration. This process started in February 2018 and will conclude with the definition of the rules and bodies of the collaboration. The next step will be the submission of the ET proposal to the 2020 updated of the ESFRI roadmap.

LAGUNA

In accordance to the ApPEC/ASPERA in its Roadmap Phase I (January 2007): “We recommend that a new large European infrastructure is put forward, as a future international multi-purpose facility on the 100 000 – 1 000 000 ton scale for improved studies on proton decay and of low-energy neutrinos from astrophysical origin. The three detector technologies Water-Cherenkov, Liquid-Scintillator and Liquid-Argon, should be evaluated in the context of a common design study which should also address the underground infrastructure and the possibility of an eventual detection of future accelerator neutrino beams.
The European collaboration LAGUNA has been formed by the LSC, the University Autonoma Madrid (UAM) and another 21 European research institutes. LAGUNA has been funded by the E.U. with 1.7 M€ for its start, with the explicit request of focusing in the Feasibility Studies (FS), mainly geotechnical, of such a facility in the candidate sites (the LSC plus another six), considering all three possible detection technologies [FP7-INFRASTRUCTURES-2007-1, Pro.: 212343-LAGUNA-DS, Funding Scheme: Collaborative Project CP, Duration: 01/07/2008 – 30/06/2010]. Very large underground facilities are also being considered in Japan, in the context of the Hyper-Kamiokande project, and in the USA, as part of the DUSEL project.”
The LAGUNA project finished in June 2011.
