The Research and Development programme is structured according to three categories:
Technology driven R&D (T)
Aims at the development of systems and expertise to guarantee knowledge of state of the art technologies to continue operating efficiently existing systems, processes or services. Typically, this R&D targets the upgrade of existing technologies at the LHC and the existing accelerator complex.
Project driven R&D (P)
Determines methods, construct prototypes to address specific project needs or requirements, e.g. approved projects and studies such as HL-LHC, CLIC, FCC, etc. Deliverables are expected in a well-defined time scale.
Generic R&D (G)
Builds on the body of knowledge of core, strategic technologies in TE. It advances scientific knowledge and represents path-breaking options for current and future projects.
