Keio University Faculty of Science and Technology Signs Collaboration Agreement with CERN

 On April 17, 2015, the Faculty of Science and Technology at Keio University signed a collaboration agreement with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. With aims to promote collaborations in academic, scientific, and technological domains, the agreement will promote research collaborations through the exchange of researchers and provide Keio Science and Technology students with internship opportunities. The agreement is initially slated to last five years.
 CERN leads research in particle physics as an international joint research institute funded and managed by 21 participating countries, including Germany, France, and Italy. With the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN is home to the world’s highest energy particle beam acceleration experiments and research. Aiming to upgrade LHC’s injector chain, CERN has recently been developing Linac4, a new 160 MeV linear accelerator to act as the first stage for the LHC. A research group at Keio University contributes, with plasma numerical simulations and a mutual exchange of researchers with CERN, to the development of the negative hydrogen ion source for the Linac4.
 Along with promoting more active collaboration in negative ion plasma research, this agreement is also hoped to expand joint research in fields including beam optics, high frequency matching circuits, atomic and molecular spectroscopy. The agreement is also expected to trigger an expansion in international research activity by Keio University in these fields. For Keio students, CERN internships should serve as good opportunities to both deepen their own research and directly experience the consensus building and problem solving processes required for international projects.
