 Tracking and Flavour Tagging at FCC-hh / Perez Codina, Estel (CERN) ; Roloff, Philipp Gerhard (CERN) Tagging heavy flavour jets is crucial for many aspects of the FCC-hh physics programme, such as Higgs and top measurements, as well as searches for physics Beyond the Standard Model. The wide physics programme at FCC-hh requires excellent b-tagging and c-tagging capabilities for jets over a large energy range.

 Industrial Spillovers from the LHC/HL-LHC Programme at CERN / Bastianin, Andrea (Universita degli Studi di Milano, Italy) ; Florio, Massimo (Universita degli Studi di Milano, Italy) This report summarizes how the benefits for industrial partners on the LHC/HL-LHC programme can be assessed and explains the origin of these impacts. Results in this summary report form the basis for estimating the potential benefits that can emerge for industrial partners in the frame of a post-LHC particle collider project, such as a Future Circular Collider (FCC).

 The Value of Human Capital Formation at CERN / Catalano, Gelsomina (Universita degli Studi di Milano, Italy) ; Florio, Massimo (Universita degli Studi di Milano, Italy) ; Morretta, Valentina (Universita degli Studi di Milano,Italy) ; Portaluri, Tommasi (ETH Zürich, Switzerland) This report summarises the results of the impacts of training that Early Career Researchers (ECR) experience during their activity in CERN’s LHC/HL-LHC programme. The report focuses on demonstrating the robustness of the findings by validating them using additional information such as the experience gained with an initial survey in the frame of the CERN Alumni Network , a survey carried out with the leaders of those teams in CERN projects that form the frame for the training activities, salary surveys in the domain of physics and salary databases.

 Scientific Research at CERN as a Public Good: A Survey to French Citizens. / Florio, Massimo (Universita degli Studi di Milano, Italy) ; Giffoni, Francesco (CSIL - Centre for Industrial Studies, Milan, Italy) CERN produces knowledge advances about the nature and the origins of the Universe, which can be considered a ‘public good’ . The provision of such public good is financed by the contributions of its Member States. [...] CERN-ACC-2018-0024.- Geneva : CERN, 2018 Fulltext: PDF;

 Hit multiplicity approach to b-tagging in FCC-hh / Perez Codina, Estel (CERN) ; Roloff, Philipp Gerhard (CERN) The FCC-hh project aims to study proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}$=100 TeV. The ability to tag heavy flavour jets of high energy produced in those collisions will be crucial for many beyond the Standard Model searches such as Z' production.

 Material options for the superconducting rf system of the Future Circular Collider / Aull, Sarah ; Brunner, Olivier (CERN) ; Butterworth, Andy (CERN) ; Schwerg, Nikolai The design of the superconducting RF (SRF) systems of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) machine variants requires a thorough comparison of the different options for cavity material, oper- ating temperature and frequency. We collected representative SRF performance data at different frequencies and temperatures of bulk niobium as the standard technology and of niobium thin films as a potential alternative and develop a perspective for future performance for all material- frequency-temperature combinations as function of accelerating gradient.

 Arc cell options for the HE-LHC / Keintzel, Jacqueline (Vienna University of Technology (AT)) The optics design of the High Energy Large Hadron Collider (HE-LHC), which aims to reach approximately twice the centre of mass energy of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), in an already existing tunnel is challenging which leads to a trade off between energy reach, aperture and survey offset. Different arc cell options have been stud- ied to ﬁnd the best arc design of the HE-LHC, where constraints like inter-element distances and tunnel geometry need to be considered as well as the reachable center of mass energy.

 Social Cost Benefit Analysis of HL-LHC / Bastianin, Andrea (Università degli Studi e INFN Milano (IT)) ; Florio, Massimo (Università degli Studi e INFN Milano (IT)) We present a Social Cost–Benefit Analysis (CBA) of the High Luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC), assessing its economic costs and benefits up to 2038. The Net Present Value (NPV) of the HL-LHC project is positive at the end of the observation period.
