European project STRONG-2020
The European project STRONG-2020 has obtained a funding of about 10 Million Euro for the next five years. The QCD team of CPHT participates in this collaborative ambitious program which aims at resolving a list of open questions at the forefront of our present knowledge in this field at the frontier of nuclear and particle physics. This includes a full understanding of the tridimensional structure of the proton, the spectroscopy of hadrons and their exotic states and the properties of the hot and dense quark-gluon plasma. This program will help unify and enforce the theoretical and experimental studies of the strong interaction, a vivid subject that attracts an active community of about 2500 researchers in Europe.
