The three flagships of the European Accelerator Physics are LHC at CERN, FAIR at GSI, and NICA in Dubna. FAIR and NICA are still under construction. Although the LHC is in operation since 2009, it will undergo a major upgrade during the shutdown scheduled for 2018 – 2019. The expected increase in luminosity and bunch crossing frequency will significantly exceed the original LHC design specifications. In that sense we may refer to it as a "new LHC". New accelerator facilities require detectors and experimental setups that would cope with the new demands and harsh working conditions. All three accelerator projects have generated significant detector R&D but until recently there was relatively little direct collaboration between the experiments. This talk will show the first benefits of the collaboration between the group working on the Fast Interaction Trigger for ALICE Upgrade at CERN LHC and the team building Fast Forward Detector for NICA’s Multi-Purpose Detector. In conclusion, further avenues of joint R&D will be proposed.
