STREAM, Smart Sensor Technologies and Training for Radiation Enhanced Applications and Measurements, is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions within Horizon 2020 involving partners from Austria, CERN, France, Germany, Switzerland and UK.
STREAM is a career development network on scientific design, construction and manufacturing of advanced radiation instrumentation. It targets the development of innovative radiation-hard, smart CMOS sensor technologies for scientific and industrial applications.
The platform technology developed within the project will be tested in the demanding conditions posed by the CERN LHC detectors’ environment as well as European industry leaders in field of CMOS imaging, electron microscopy and radiation sensors. This leveraging factor will allow to fine-tune the technology to meet the requirements of industrial application cases on demand such as electron microscopy and medical X-ray imaging, as well as pathway towards novel application fields such as satellite environments, industrial X-ray systems and near-infrared imaging.
STREAM will train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative ESRs and widen their academic career and employment opportunities. The network structures the research and training in five scientific work-packages, which span the whole value-chain from research to application:
