The ENUBET experiment at the CERN Neutrino Platform has pioneered the concept of a 'monitored neutrino beam' by addressing the feasibility and technical challenges associated with this technique. In these innovative neutrino beams, the flux and flavour composition of the neutrinos are measured by directly detecting the charged leptons produced in association with the neutrinos in the beam decay tunnel. Therefore, a monitored neutrino beam represents an ideal facility for a new generation of cross-section experiments that cater to the precision era of neutrino physics. ENUBET has designed and prototyped all components of such a beam, from the target and focusing system to the tunnel detectors, with a focus on identifying positrons from kaon decays. In this seminar, these achievements are summarized, including results that have exceeded the expectations: the capability to monitor muons from pion and kaon decays and the effectiveness of the ENUBET static focusing system. The possible implementations at CERN using existing beam components and/or detectors, such as the NP02 and NP04/ProtoDUNEs will also be discussed.
