The primary benefit of EuroNuNet is to aggregate the European neutrino community for a common study of a novel concept for the experimental determination of the neutrino-antineutrino symmetry violation.
Its aim is to create a European multidisciplinary network bringing together experts from academia and industry of sufficient expertise, capacity and drive to develop, by exchange of knowledge and people through workshops, meetings and training, a new European infrastructure concept enabling the discovery of leptonic CP violation. To this end, two major study objectives will be pursued by the EuroNuNet Action to demonstrate that:
- the proton linear accelerator under construction in Europe at ESS (European Spallation Source) in Lund (Sweden), suitably adapted, can be used to produce the world’s most intense neutrino beam concurrently with the originally intended use of the accelerator.
- the large underground neutrino detector required can be build and operated at distance of ca. 500 km from the neutrino target.
Both objectives are comprised in the H2020 European project, ESSnuSB.
This Action will pave the way towards an installation that has not only scientific but also significant strategic, technological and societal benefits.
