CERN and the Italian Space Agency (ASI) signed the first implementation of their bilateral collaboration framework. The project aims to define a compact high-field magnet based on advanced high temperature superconductivity technology suitable for space applications (such as high resolution astroparticle spectrometry), and to design, build and test a demonstrator. The concept was presented during the EUCAS Conference in October 2017.
