Abstract: The main goal of this complex project is to develop applications, prototypes and services based on new technologies with applicability in the economic environment and which have demonstrated their reliability and efficiency in large experiments in the cosmic radiation physics and beyond.
Adapting the technologies used in nuclear physics and cosmic radiation (especially at the Pierre Auger International Observatory) to the needs of the industrial environment and small consumers will mainly be done by reducing the cost of equipment and services. This is possible due to the accelerated evolution in the information and telecommunications technology sector.
Moreover, the methods of radioactivity detection of cosmic particles are very similar to classical telecommunication systems (front end), so that progress in one direction or another can directly and immediately influence the evolution in the other field. Many electronic solutions that until now have been specifically built for each experiment can now be found at much lower and at least equivalent prices.

Objectives: Objective no. 1. Using the knowledge and technologies related to cosmic radiation field for the development of security applications with economic and social impact through the development of prototypes with applicability both in the industrial and research environments.
Objective no. 2. Attracting young university graduates towards the research environment by training them and involving them in the field of cosmic radiation and related fields through organizing workshops and summer schools.
Objective no. 3. Popularizing science by organizing events, publicizing and building educational demonstrators.
Objective 4. Integrating the contribution of the Romanian partners in the Pierre Auger Collaboration through a better management of human and material resources and the development of prototypes necessary for a better functioning of the experiments implemented at the Observatory.
Objective no. 5. Developing new directions of applied research by organizing training sessions for the personnel of the project in the fields of cosmic radiation, environment radioactivity, electronics, etc.
