EU’s Research and Innovation Infrastructure
What are we supporting? A look into EU’s research infrastructure
The European Union runs some of the planet’s largest research and innovation programmes. Successful participation in these programmes is prestigious and promising in terms of funding. Beyond individual programmes and calls, knowledge about EU’s involvement in the field of science is however limited.
To help closing the gap, this presentation aims at providing information on EU’s Research and Innovation (R&I) infrastructure.
The aim is to shed light on what is behind EU’s involvement in the field of science, and to develop an understanding of the drives behind its expansion. This includes a presentation of key documents that relate to EU’s R&I activities and individual policies. Finally, the presentation will attempt to map EU’s research infrastructure.

A Thermometer for the Little Bang
Understanding how matter behaved shortly after the Big Bang is a central goal of modern high energy physics. To this end we need to recreate the conditions of extremely high temperatures and densities present 13.7 billion years ago, which is achieved today using particle colliders, such as the large hadron collider located at the CERN laboratory (Little Bang). Alexander Rothkopf's research focuses on devising theoretical methods that allow us to understand the properties of matter inside the collision center, by simulating the dynamical evolution of so called quarkonium particles, the bound states of heavy quarks and anti-quarks. Bringing to high energy physics concepts and methods, originally devised in low-energy condensed matter physics, such as the quantum variant of Brownian motion, he is working towards establishing heavy quarkonium as thermometer in heavy-ion collisions.
Alexander Rothkopf is a member of the particle physics and cosmology group, who received the Lyse Research Prize for 2019.
