The Synergies between Environmental Sciences and Astroparticle Physics



ASPERA is a network of European national government agencies aimed at coordinating national research efforts in Astroparticle Physics (ApP). In the European strategy for ApP, ASPERA has identified seven crucial topics related to the most exciting questions about the Universe.
A key feature of the ApP projects is the deployment of research infrastructures in remote or hostile environments such as Polar regions, caves, deep seas, deserts, and space. Within and around these infrastructures, exciting opportunities can be envisaged for new synergies with environmental sciences and other associated sciences.
Scientists active in collaborative research and agency representatives in charge of interdisciplinary programs (100 – 150 participants)
The Goal
The goal of this workshop is to invite the scientific communities and the funding agencies to discuss how these synergies can be promoted and encouraged for the development of science and to the benefit of society, at the image of the relation between nuclear and particle physics and medicine since the middle of the 20th century.
The Output
The expected output of the workshop is twofold:
-       Firstly, to prepare a working document for the funding agencies and the ApP projects on the collaborative research within these infrastructures.
-       Secondly, to publicize the potential of the ApP infrastructures for collaborative research within the scientific community.
Interdisciplinarity and astroparticle physics infrastructures
It is common today for national government agencies to implement interdisciplinary programs and these cover a large diversity of research activities. In the case of ApP infrastructure, collaborative research with associated sciences is motivated by the:
1)     Access to remote or hostile environment in which the ApP infrastructures are operated.
2)      Competence in complex sensing systems, such as particle detectors, developed for these infrastructures.
3)      Technologies allowing the process of large quantities of extremely pure and/or exotic materials.
4)     Systems for data acquisition, processing, and dissemination that are developed for these projects.
