Abstract:
Particle physics is at the forefront of the ERA, attracting a global community of more than 10,000 scientists. With the upgrade of the LHC and the
preparation of new experiments, the community will have to overcome unprecedented challenges in order to answer fundamental questions
concerning the Higgs boson, neutrinos, and physics beyond the Standard Model. Major developments in detector technology are required to
ensure the success of these endeavours. The AIDA-2020 project brings together the leading European infrastructures in detector development
and a number of academic institutes, thus assembling the necessary expertise for the ambitious programme of work. In total, 19 countries and

CERN are involved in this programme, which follows closely the priorities of the European Strategy for Particle Physics. AIDA-2020 aims to
advance detector technologies beyond current limits by offering well-equipped test beam and irradiation facilities for testing detector systems
under its Transnational Access programme. Common software tools, micro-electronics and data acquisition systems are also provided. This
shared high-quality infrastructure will ensure optimal use and coherent development, thus increasing knowledge exchange between European
groups and maximising scientific progress. The project also exploits the innovation potential of detector research by engaging with European
industry for large-scale production of detector systems and by developing applications outside of particle physics, e.g. for medical imaging. AIDA-
2020 will lead to enhanced coordination within the European detector community, leveraging EU and national resources. The project will explore
novel detector technologies and will provide the ERA with world-class infrastructure for detector development, benefiting thousands of researchers
participating in future particle physics projects, and contributing to maintaining Europe's leadership of the field.

Total score: 14.50 (Threshold: 10.00)
Form information
SCORING
Scores must be in the range 0-5.
Interpretation of the score:
0– The proposal fails to address the criterion or cannot be assessed due to missing or incomplete information.
1– Poor. The criterion is inadequately addressed, or there are serious inherent weaknesses.
2– Fair. The proposal broadly addresses the criterion, but there are significant weaknesses.
3– Good. The proposal addresses the criterion well, but a number of shortcomings are present.
4– Very good. The proposal addresses the criterion very well, but a small number of shortcomings are present.
5– Excellent. The proposal successfully addresses all relevant aspects of the criterion.Any shortcomings are minor.
Criterion 1 - Excellence
Score:  5.00 (Threshold: 3.00/5.00 , Weight: 100.00%)
Note: The following aspects will be taken into account, to the extent that the proposed work corresponds to the topic description
in the work programme: .
Clarity and pertinence of the objectives;
Credibility of the proposed approach;
Soundness of the concept, including trans-disciplinary considerations, where relevant;
Extent that proposed work is ambitious, has innovation potential, and is beyond the state of the art (e.g. ground-breaking
objectives, novel concepts and approaches).
The extent to which the Networking Activities will foster a culture of co-operation between the participants and other relevant
stakeholders.
The extent to which the Access Activities (Trans-national Access and/or Virtual Access activities) will offer access to state-of-the-
art infrastructures, high quality services, and will enable users to conduct excellent research.
The extent to which the Joint Research Activities will contribute to quantitative and qualitative improvements of the services
provided by the infrastructures.

+ The project aims at detector technology beyond the current state-of-the-art and upgrade of test facilities for the LHC upgrades and also for
the future accelerator projects, maintaining European leadership in particle physics. The project is perfectly in line with European Strategy for
Particle Physics.

+ It is a very clear, pertinent, ambitious and timely project.
+ There are number of actions that will provide high quality services to conduct advanced research e.g., beam user support, software
development, new HEP technologies, new detectors, detector collaboration with industry and technology transfer.

Criterion 2 - Impact
Score:  5.00 (Threshold: 3.00/5.00 , Weight: 100.00%)
Note: The following aspects will be taken into account, to the extent to which the outputs of the project should contribute at the
European and/or International level:
The expected impacts listed in the work programme under the relevant topic;
Enhancing innovation capacity and integration of new knowledge;
Strengthening the competitiveness and growth of companies by developing innovations meeting the needs of European and
global markets, and where relevant, by delivering such innovations to the markets *
Any other environmental and socially important impacts;
Effectiveness of the proposed measures to exploit and disseminate the project results (including management of IPR), to
communicate the project, and to manage research data where relevant.

+ The expected impact of the proposal is very high in many ways: strengthening the ERA, innovation capacity, impact on European industry
and other fields are the most significant ones.

+ The project results have a socially important potential for exploitation outside high energy physics.
+ Transnational activities are significantly enhanced and provide simple, high quality and easy access to the RIs.
654168/AIDA-2020-12/01/2015-11:52:42
2 / 3

+ The inclusion of 60 PhD positions will very significantly contribute to the training of young researchers .
+ The proposal has very well described Networking Activities, Transnational Access and Joint Research Activities, with a good balance
between the different activities.

+ Gender balance is adequately addressed.
Criterion 3 - Quality and efficiency of the implementation
Score:  4.50 (Threshold: 3.00/5.00 , Weight: 100.00%)
Note: The following aspects will be taken into account:
Coherence and effectiveness of the work plan, including appropriateness of the allocation of tasks and resources;
Complementarity of the participants within the consortium (when relevant);
Appropriateness of the management structures and procedures, including risk and innovation management.

+ The project has a coherent work plan, with clear tasks towards specific objectives.
+ Man-power allocated to the tasks is appropriate.
+ The project presents very good geographic coverage, including 19 countries and 38 institutions across Europe.
+ Management and procedures are structured for smooth and efficient operation of the project.
+ There is a large amount of matching funds from participating institutes.
Minor shortcomings are:
- The consortium partners UCLouvain, UoB, ITAINNOVA, RBI and JSI participate only in the transnational access activities, but they are not
part of any networking or joint research activity.

- The description of "novel magnetisation schemes" is vaguely presented.
- Networking workshops for new detector communities are mentioned but not included in the workplan as a task, deliverable or milestone.
