ILIAS - Integrated Large Infrastructures for Astroparticle Sciences
The ILIAS Project brings together scientists from across Europe working in Astroparticle Science, a young and exciting research field situated at the crossroads between Particle Physics, Astronomy, and Cosmology.
ILIAS has pulled together a major part of Europe's leading infrastructures in Astroparticle Physics, namely Underground laboratories and Gravitational Waves observatories, to produce a focused, coherent and integrated project. Its goals are multiple:
• organise and structure the European Astroparticle Physics community,
• improve the existing infrastructures and their operation,
• prepare the best infrastructures for the future.
Established through a contract between the European Commission (EC) and a Consortium, today ILIAS gathers 21 participants, or some 70 laboratories from 13 countries. It was launched on April 2004 and it will continue for 5 years, with a total EC financial contribution of € 7,5 Million.
ILIAS coordination is insured by Gilles Gerbier from the French research organisation CEA.
