Communication channels for decision-making are well-defined;
Transparent procedures to guarantee a fair share of the resources
The electronics staff unanimously want a strong link with the experiments and with their projects, while being part of the electronics technology group.
This is fully recognized. The idea of a centralized group in electronics is NOT to cut the communication between the staff and the project/experiment they are involved in.
GL and SL are there to “enable” the process, not to take possession of the resources. They are there to collect the needs, to allow the work to take place, to identify synergy and to make sure that the resources are used at best within the limit of their availability.
Participation in new R&D projects: PH department plans to work soon on peer-review process for Upgrade R&D, with involvement of the experiments.
