The EU’s CREMLIN project is providing around €200,000 towards the development of the Silicon Tracking System for the Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment at FAIR. Participating in the development of this tracking system are Russian scientists from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR). They want to use the same technology to construct tracking sensors for experiments at the future NICA collider. The NICA facility is currently under construction in Dubna near Moscow.


The European-Russian cooperation project CREMLIN (Connecting Russian and European Measures for Large-Scale Research Infrastructures) was created by the European Commission and supports cooperation between six large-scale scientific projects in Russia – including the NICA collider project at JINR in Dubna and the high-flux reactor PIK in Gatchina – and European research laboratories such as FAIR and European XFEL. In total, the project brings together 13 laboratories in Europe with six in Russia. It was launched in early October with an opening conference in Moscow.
