Empowering Underground Laboratories Network Usage
Interreg Baltic Sea Region co-funded project Empowering Underground Laboratories network usage (EUL) continues the work done during the Baltic Sea Underground Innovation Network (BSUIN) project.
Underground laboratories in the Baltic Sea region are not utilized to their full potential even though world-leading research organizations and industrial companies are nearby. In order to use the available underground space better, the BSUIN project has developed service concepts for the underground laboratories and an open-access platform that characterizes them. These concepts and the platform will be further tested, evaluated, and improved within the EUL project. Better information about the laboratories and their business opportunities is provided to regional development agencies and potential new customers from academia and business.
The duration of the project is the year 2021. There are 13 partners in the project consortium.
The staff of University of Silesia in Katowice performed supplementary measurements natural background radiation in Reiche Zeche mine (Freiberg) in 3rd-5th December. These measurements were carry out by using portable HPGe and RAD7 radon detectors. The samples of rock and water were collected as well, in order to perform measuremts in Institue of Physics (USK) […]
In the spring 2018 the exploration workshops were successfully held with each Underground Laboratory (UL) and the existing business models of the ULs were described. The conclusions and a summary of the process were presented in June in Äspö, followed by vivid discussion. The results of the exploration stage will also be presented in ECO-TECH […]
Marcin Kasztelan and Karol Jędrzejczak presented posters about the BSUIN project during international conference “The multi-messenger astronomy: gamma-ray bursts, search for electromagnetic counterparts to neutrino events and gravitational waves”. Posters were also presented during short oral presentations. The conference took place in Russia, in North Caucasus, Karachai-Cherkessian Republic in October, 7.-14.10.2018. The theme of the conference […]
