Training for cAreer deveLopment in high-radiation ENvironment Technologies

Objective

TALENT is a 4-year multi-site training network aiming at career development of young researchers on design, construction, manufacturing, testing and commissioning of innovative radiation hard detector modules and novel scientific instruments. TALENT provides, to 15 ESRs and 2 ERs, training for deep understanding of the complexity of scientific instrument building from theoretical design until industrial manufacturing cost efficiency considerations. The network consists of 9 academic institutions and 8 industrial companies of excellence, providing the researchers a multicultural, truly stimulating and interdisciplinary learning environment.
The 2006 report of ESFRI and the European Strategy for Particle Physics set the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Upgrade and enhancement of intersectoral R&D as priorities to keep the leading high energy physics facilities and expertise of Europe at the world-class level. TALENT will make substantial advancements into these objectives. The research program significantly contributes into CERN ATLAS R&D project, the Insertable B-layer (IBL). Furthermore, IBL’s innovative detector modules and instrumentation are already showing major potential for industrial applications in satellite instruments, X-ray systems, sensor technologies, medical imaging and cancer therapy. To enhance intersectoral R&D and training collaboration as well as mutual knowledge transfer, and thus to speed up the development of the IBL technologies, major R&D efforts within TALENT are put into these industrial applications.
The mutual R&D interests the intersectoral consortium partners share is likely to lead into particularly creative multidisciplinary learning environment within TALENT. The chosen training approach will deepen the existing R&D collaborations between the partners and, more importantly, give the participating young researchers expertise and understanding to build a successful international career in R&D in science, industry or in their interface.
