What next? Theoretical and Experimental Physics after the Discovery of the Brout-Englert-Higgs Boson

This event was organized by the Italian Embassy in the Russian Federation in collaboration with the Joint Institute of Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna. 70-80 leading scientists from Russia, Italy and other European Countries including France, Germany and Belgium in particular participated.

The long awaited detection of the Brout-Englert-Higgs boson is a milestone of Physics in the new Millennium. Many physicists and engineers from all over the world working at CERN, the European Mega scientific infrastructure, contributed to this experimental discovery, which completes the theoretical fabrics of the Standard Model. The Russian and JINR contribution to CERN activities and successes is very large and crucial. The organic agreement between CERN and JINR also conveys relevant contributions from others of its Member Countries. The Italian contributions to CERN successes is also very important and conspicuous. For these reasons it was quite timely in view of the EU – Russia Year of Science, that the yearly Round Table event "Italy-Russia@Dubna" would be devoted to discuss the perspective of both Experimental and Theoretical Physics after the assessment of the Brout-Englert-Higgs milestone. The goals of the meeting were both to assess the historical significance of this epochal discovery and to explore in a wide overview “What next”.

At the opening session of this Conference the Russian Vice Minister of Education and Science Lyudmila Ogorodova were present as well as Dr. Richard Burger, representing the European Delegation in Moscow, in addition to official representatives of the Italian Embassy in the Russian Federation.

This was the occasion for a public debate on various issues concerning the participation of Russian institutes and individual scientists in Horizon 2020 EU Projects. Some possible actions and agreements for the creation of new research networks were examined and will be further discussed in the next event taking place in Trieste from the 3rd to the 7th of November 2014.
