Formal framework agreements

The centers experimental activities are organized within the framework of the international collaborations running the LHC detectors, ATLAS and ALICE, and some of the theoretical activities within the satellite project PLANCK. This implies duties and benefits:

Participants in the ATLAS and ALICE experiments are required to spend half of their research time on technical work (such as shifts in the control room). Professors and Post Docs are furthermore required to pay about 80kkr each per year to Maintenance & Operations. The rest of their time must be spent on either physics analysis for publications or on upgrade plans. In return they are authors and enjoy access to data and services from the experiment.

• Participants in the PLANCK mission have access to PLANCK data a year before they are published. The Danish participants have furthermore a formal collaboration agreement with Cardiff University in the UK and an agreement about supercomputer access with the Southern Federal University of Russia.
