The Europe-Japan Accelerator Development Exchange Programme (E-JADE) addresses the urgent need of exchange of ideas on R&D and implementation of future accelerators for particle physics. It does so by exchanging accelerator scientists and experts between Europe and Japan. The planned exchange of staff of leading European Laboratories and Universities with two prominent Japanese partners (KEK and University of Tokyo) will focus on the most critical subjects and profiles namely on the design, R&D and prototyping of the future accelerator facilities mentioned above. Key objectives beyond technical progress are related to sharing of technical knowledge, project organisation, treatment of multiple safety codes for technical equipment, purchase methodologies and industrial capabilities, innovation and networks to significantly advance these projects.
E-JADE is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) action, funded by the EU under Horizon2020. The original E-JADE proposal can be found here.
