                             Accelerator Science
A Collaboration Agreement between CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, and the
John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science (JAI), a joint venture between the University of Oxford
and Royal Holloway University of London, was signed at CERN on July 14 th 2009. The agreement
provides for co-operation between the JAI and CERN on a range of projects, from the Large Hadron
Collider (LHC) upgrade and the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) to improved methods of treating
cancer using protons and light ions. The photograph shows the CERN Director General, Rolf Heuer,
and the JAI Director, Ken Peach, at the signing ceremony.




After the agreement was signed, a group from the two universities visited the LHC accelerator, the
ATLAS experiment and both control rooms. The photograph shows the group beneath the road named
after Sir John Adams with (from left to right), Paul Collier (Head of the Beams Department),
Emmanuel Tsesmelis (CERN Directorate Office), Professor Adam Tickell (Royal Holloway), Josi
Schinzel (the daughter of Sir John Adams), Professor Sue Iversen (University of Oxford), Professor
Ken Peach, Professor Brian Foster (University of Oxford) and Professor Grahame Blair (Royal
Holloway and Deputy Director of the JAI).
