On Friday 24th September we were delighted to receive an informal visit from Mr. Christopher Adams, son of Sir John Adams, and a group of friends. Their cycle ride from London to Oxford ended, most appropriately, at the John Adams Institute!

The inaugural joint UK accelerator institutes seminar series has ended after a octet of thrilling seminars. The series was by all accounts a roaring success and covered all types of accelerator research ranging from the smallest laser driven accelerators to the monolithic FCC-hh.
Oxford JAI post doctoral researcher Rebecca Ramjiawan has been awarded a CERN fellowship for work on the transfer line designs for future accelerators starting in September.
