25 THE CANFRANC UNDERGROUND LABORATORY FINANCEMENT TENDERING EXECUTION BASIC INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGEMENT APROVED (4 M ) FINISHED STARTING NOW (1 yr) APPLIED FOR DGA-UZ UZ-MEC CONSORTIUM (under discussion) LSC. & U. de Zaragoza 25

26 The LSC would be run by a consortium. All the 3 institutions involved have expressed a clear interest. A brand new Institute would be created to provide scientific, technical and logistic support to the activities of the LSC and Astroparticle Physics in general. It is our purpose to turn this into a first class scientific installation & group. The existing UZ group would be associated to the consortium. The activities of the new LSC would be integrated and coordinated within the ILIAS network. Strong international participation is an absolute must. The advice of ApPEC would be seeked. LSC. & U. de Zaragoza 26
