  • One single account in use: CERN Team account T299584

  • Covers Maintenance and Operation of the CLOUD Facility at the T11 beam-line at CERN

    • Gas supplies and gas systems

    • Thermal systems, including temperature measurements

    • HV system

    • UV systems

    • Sampling probes, optical ports

    • Central DAQ

  • Used also to cover modifications and minor upgrades to the above systems, to adapt them to different CLOUD measurement setups and objectives.

  • As agreed in the 1st CLOUD FRC meeting (25 May 2012) the present annual contributions to the Common Fund are 50 kEuro and 20 kEuro for category 1 and 2 institutes respectively.

  • University of Leeds, UK: 20 kEuro

  • University of Manchester, UK: 20 kEuro

  • Caltech, USA: 20 kEuro (+20 kE for 2012)

  • Carnegie Mellon University, USA: 20 kEuro

  • Lisbon universities, Portugal: 10 kEuro

  • Major cost items for the last 2 months of 2013 (on-going CLOUD8 run):

  • Gas supplies: ~30 kEuro

  • Adaptations for the CLOUDy run in Nov: ~30 kEuro

These CLOUD partners are urged to pay their contributions within 2013.

  • Summary

  • Until 2012 the CLOUD expenditures were clearly more than the contributions. At end of 2012 the total debt to CERN was 577 kEuro.

  • CLOUD collaboration is very grateful to CERN for the support – and patience – it has received.

  • In 2013 the expenditures have reduced leading to a better yearly budget balance.

  • But, this holds through 2013 only if the missing contributions are paid!

  • Budget-wise 2014 expected to be similar to 2013.

  • For the moment, 2015 onwards no budgets planned for CLOUD facility modifications/upgrades. Re-start of PSI contributions will further help.

  • The current contribution levels of 50 kEuro and 20 kEuroneed to be maintained in the coming years, until the debt is paid.
