This project funded by the Impuls- und Vernetzungsfonds of the Helmholtz Association (IVF) is centred on the development of experiments in high energy physics from HERA towards the LHC and the ILC. The Helmholtz Russia Joint Research Group (HRJG) is tailored to allow efficient participation in this programme by selecting a few important key topics where existing expertise of participating Helmholtz and Russian institutes can be brought in and further developed. The HRJRG will bring together data analysis and detector experts from the HERA, LHC and ILC communities and catalyze the direct transfer of knowledge between them. This ensures that developments for the future take the as advanced as possible starting point and pay their return at the earliest date, possibly with a beneficial transfer already into the running experiment .The activities of the HRJRG fit naturally into the framework of the strategic alliance between DESY and German universities, recently proposed to the HGF. Conducting the activities of the HRJRG will strengthen the role of the participating Russian institutes and DESY in particle physics over the next years. The acquired experience in detector development and operation together with the expertise in data analysis and further development in phenomenology will provide the basis for a sustained, long-term participation in fore-front experiments of particle physics.

The Helmholtz Russia Joint Research Group continues the long-lived and very fruitful cooperation between DESY and Russian Institutes beyond the common efforts for HERA experiments, physics and detector R&D towards new activities imminent at the LHC and for the future ILC. Within the project several excellent young Russian scientists and students are supported, opening the possibility for a future career in high energy particle physics.
