Upgrade da Experiência ATLAS (ATLAS Upgrade 2021)

Type: National Project Project

Duration: from 2021 Oct 01 to 2023 Sep 30

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: LIP - Laboratório de Instrumentação e Física Experimental de Partículas (Other) - Lisboa, Portugal

The purpose of this project is to support the Portuguese participation in the upgrade of the ATLAS experiment for the High-Luminosity phase of the LHC (HL-LHC) collider at CERN. The LHC and its experiments constitute one of the most complex scientific and technological infrastructures in existence. This project will involve and foster technological R&D to achieve the challenging performance goals necessary to cope with the harsh HL-LHC environment, as well as continued prospective studies of the physics goals of the experiment. This work will count on the participation of several graduate students in physics and engineering and will provide an ideal setting for their training, in a demanding international environment at the forefront of this area. Students are selected and trained with a clear aim at gender equality, to foster the participation of more women and girls in science and empower them, to improve a balance which is still far from ideal. This is a project involving the collaboration of many countries in high-end technological and scientific work that by contributing to the know-how and training of highly qualified and inclusive workforce that will contribute to the economic growth of a technology-based society, where innovation is key.
