EuPRAXIA Preparatory Phase

EuPRAXIA is the first European project that develops a dedicated particle accelerator research infrastructure based on novel plasma acceleration concepts and laser technology. EuPRAXIA is one of the projects on the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap of 2021.

The preparational phase project EuPRAXIA-PP will serve a central role in the overall implementation plan of EuPRAXIA as a truly European Research Infrastructure. This new European facility will serve users from multiple fields with cutting edge beams of particles and photons, while driving open innovation in the technology of particle accelerators. The European headquarters of EuPRAXIA are being set up at the Frascati site of INFN. Thanks to the already committed funding for the Italian pillar of EuPRAXIA, the preparatory phase project will be complemented by already started construction efforts for first pilot user operation in 2028. The synergy and integration of the European preparatory phase project and the national Italian project will ensure that this project will serve and benefit all EuPRAXIA partners and the full European Research Area (ERA). 

The EuPRAXIA Open Innovation Forum will be the governance body where potential industrial users and co-developers meet with EuPRAXIA management to foster collaboration agreements (collaborative and contractual research).
