EuPRAXIA Doctoral Network (EuPRAXIA)


EuPRAXIA is the first European project that develops a dedicated particle accelerator research infrastructure based on novel plasma acceleration concepts and laser technology. It focuses on the development of electron accelerators and underlying technologies, their user communities, and the exploitation of existing accelerator infrastructures in Europe. It was accepted onto the ESFRI roadmap for strategically important research infrastructures in June 2021 as a European priority.

To fully exploit the potential of this breakthrough facility, advances are urgently required in plasma and laser R&D, studies into facility design and optimization, along a coordinated push for novel applications. EuPRAXIA-DN is a new MSCA Doctoral Network for a cohort of 10 Fellows between universities, research centers and industry that will carry out an interdisciplinary and cross-sector plasma accelerator research and training program for this new research infrastructure. The network focuses on scientific and technical innovations and on boosting the career prospects of its Fellows.

This project is financed by EU.
