Introduction to the AIDA2020 project and the WP5 (Data acquisition system for beam tests)

What is AIDA-2020?

The AIDA-2020 project brings together the leading European research infrastructures in the field of detector development and testing and a number of institutes, universities and technological centers, thus assembling the necessary expertise for the ambitious programme of work.

WP5: Data acquisition system for beam tests

Visit the AIDA2020 WP5 webpage.

AIDA-2020 is divided into 15 Work Packages. A Work Package (WP) is a unit of work within the project. The WPs are theoretically independent but they were defined in order to foster synergies in AIDA-2020.
