Collaborations

Collaborations with research institutes in the public sector

We currently collaborate or discuss the ALTO project with researchers from institutes coming from:

  • The APC Laboratory in Paris (France)
  • Aix-Marseille University (France)
  • Hamburg University (Germany)
  • INAF Astronomical Observatory of Brera (Italy)
  • Blekinge Institute of Technology (Sweden)

Collaborations with the private sector

We have collaborated with the Swedish industry for the delivery of the first two prototypes of ALTO, i.e. the first two water Cherenkov tanks in carbon fibre and the two first scintillation detectors. This work, supported by the Linnaeus Technical Centre, was carried out between 2015 and 2018 in Collaboration with the TBS Yard AB company based in Torsås (Småland, Sweden).

Collaborations with other research groups or centres at Linnaeus University

The ALTO group is also part of the Linnaeus University Centre for Data Intensive Sciences and Applications  (DISA) where we collaborate with groups coming from other disciplines about “Big data” applications. Our research topic within DISA is called Data Intensive Astroparticle Physics.
