CERIC meets the scientific community in Serbia through ACCELERATE
15 - 16 January 2018, Belgrade - Serbia

As part of the outreach actions organized in the framework of the ACCELERATE project, CERIC will deliver a presentation on Monday, January 15th in the University of Belgrade to researchers and science enthusiasts under the theme: ‘’CERIC-ERIC, Central European Excellence for Research in Material and Life Sciences’’.

The aim of this event is to meet with the scientific community in Serbia, introduce researchers to the scientific opportunities available for them in CERIC and guide them in writing successful proposals to get free open access to top-class research infrastructures located in Central and Eastern Europe.

The presentation will take place in the main auditorium of the university starting from 2pm.

In addition, on January 16th, a delegation from CERIC will present the Consortium and the opportunities it offers for the scientific community and policy-makers on the occasion of the ’Meeting on Science, Technology and Medicine for Sustainable Development of South-eastern Europe’’, organized by the Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia and co-organized in the framework of the ACCELERATE project. The scope of the meeting is to explore and emphasise the importance of collaboration and cooperation in the region and in Europe for the scientific community of South-East Europe.

Furthermore, CERIC will show an overview of the services it provides, in particular the open access with the aim of engaging the local community and the possibility to establish industrial collaborations in the region through its Partner Facilities.

The program of the event includes a presentation of the TESLA Accelerator Installation, that is part of the Vinča Institute and was conceived as a large-scale user infrastructure for production, acceleration and use of ion beams for science and technological development.

The new TESLA project’s purpose is the completion and commissioning of the high-energy TESLA Accelerator Installation which will give to researchers from Serbia and the South-East Europe the opportunity to innovate in the healthcare sector, among others.

ACCELERATE is funded by the European Union Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020, under grant agreement 731112
