KEK-Irfu-IN2P3 Directorate Meeting was held on May 7th

The KEK-Irfu-IN2P3 directorate meeting was held on Friday, May 7th between KEK and the French National Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics (IN2P3) and Institute for Research on the fundamental laws of the universe (Irfu) to provide a forum for communication between representatives of these institutes. Even though this meeting is held once a year, it was held remotely due to the COVID-19.

This was the first meeting with new directors of KEK that started on April 1. There were active discussions on particle and nuclear physics as well as accelerator science, especially the BelleII and COMET experiments, which are being conducted in cooperation between the two countries. They also exchanged opinions on the next phase of the Toshiko Yuasa Laboratory (TYL).

The relationship between the three institutes will be further strengthened by fruitful collaboration.
