Agencies in the United States and France have signed statements expressing interest to work together on the development and production of technical components for PIP-II, a major particle accelerator project with substantial international contributions. In addition, the French agencies also plan to collaborate on DUNE, an international flagship science project that will unlock the mysteries of neutrinos.

Fermilab and Argonne National Laboratory are co-hosting the 2018 Midwest Regional Accelerating Stewardship Workshop from Dec. 5-6. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to tour site facilities — such as IOTA and the A2D2 compact accelerator — and ample opportunity to network with lab scientific staff, as well as with the Fermilab Office of Partnerships and Technology Transfer. Come hear a few presentations, learn about our on-site accelerator and beam capabilities, and take in additional information at our informational poster… More »

From Kane County Connects, Aug. 1, 2018: Fermilab recently received the latest in a series of approvals from the U.S. Department of Energy for its Proton Improvement Plan II, a $600 million project that will see a new 176-meter-long linear accelerator built to replace the current one, constructed in the late 1960s.
