ACCELERATING RESEARCH AND TRAINING
The EuPRAXIA Doctoral Network (EuPRAXIA-DN) is a new Horizon Europe Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Network (MSCA-DN) , offering 12 high level fellowships between universities, research centers and industry that will carry out an interdisciplinary and cross-sector plasma accelerator research and training program for the new EuPRAXIA research infrastructure.
NEXT GENERATION PLASMA ACCELERATOR WITH SUPERIOR BEAM QUALITY
EuPRAXIA is the first European project that develops a dedicated particle accelerator research infrastructure based on novel plasma acceleration concepts and laser technology. It focuses on the development of electron accelerators and underlying technologies, their user communities, and the exploitation of existing accelerator infrastructures in Europe. It was accepted onto the ESFRI roadmap for strategically important research infrastructures in June 2021 as a European priority.
The comprehensive training within EuPRAXIA-DN was designed to prepare all Fellows in an optimum way for their future careers and make them attractive for future employers in academia and industry.
EuPRAXIA-DN brings together teams with world-class expertise in an interdisciplinary area of research. To achieve our research objectives, the network requires methods and skills from physics, engineering, optics, IT, materials sciences, electronics and advanced sensor technologies.
Research within EuPRAXIA-DN will target high quality science outputs in several areas:
Super-radiant nonlinear Thomson scattering
Dielectric laser accelerators
