The network strongly emphasises the training of young researchers, giving hadronic systems within Quantum Chromodynamics. Its solution calls for them the opportunity to work together with world experts in an enlarged community. It includes the centres that play a leading role in the field. subtle measurements, where spin degrees of freedom and the selection of specific final state configurations are key ingredients. New technical It is geographically balanced, including teams from the less favoured developments (polarised electron beams of high intensity and duty factor, regions of Europe.
high quality detectors,. . . ) meet this demand, but the scale of collaboration outgrows national efforts, such as presently at NIKHEF, Mainz, Bonn, or Grenoble, and calls for a European effort.
This network will provide a forum where experimentalists and theorists will combine their expertise. It will enlarge and strengthen collaborations already investigating this field at existing facilities. Three tasks have been identified: The study of the space-time evolution of elementary hadronic systems, via semi-inclusive reactions; The determination of the simplest components of the wave function of hadronic systems, via exclusive reactions; The study of the spin structure of hadronic systems, using polarised beams and polarised targets.
