08 Feb 2021

At the SESAME Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC), held on 30 November – 1st December 2020, Axel Kaprolat, BEATS project coordinator, and Gianluca Iori, BEATS beamline scientist, presented the activities of BEATS at the mid-way point  in the project.

The second year into the project saw many achievements including the completion of BEATS Science Case, the Technical Design Report (TDR), SESAME data policy and the configuration of architecture for data analysis and handling in collaboration with the Cyprus Institute.

The SAC adopted the scientific case for  BEATS as approved by the European Commission in November 2020.

The SAC congratulated the project coordinator and the BEATS team for running the project so far on-time, on-budget and on-spec. The SAC “considers BEATS to be an exemplary case of how a beamline project at SESAME should be carried out, and commends the project team”.
