Administrative history

The Detector Research and Development Committee (DRDC) was set up in July 1990. It received proposals for detector R&D involving people from Member States, other countries, and CERN itself. The committee operated in the same way as the other experimental committees of CERN, and forwarded its recommendations to the Research Board for final decision. It held its last meeting in January 1995. Its role was taken over by the LHC Committee (LHCC).

The Large Hadron Collider Committee (LHCC) was set up after the March 1992 General Meeting on LHC Physics and Detectors (ECFA Towards the LHC experimental programme) where expressions of interest were presented for experiments on the LHC. The LHCC makes recommendations to the Research Board (RB). The LHCC also reviews the LHC Computing Grid (LCG) Project. The LHCC is responsible for reviewing the remaining detector R&D projects (RD39, RD42 and RD50) having taken over the role of the Detector Research and Development Committee (DRDC) in 1995.
