The EIC Comprehensive Chromodynamics Experiment (ECCE) consortium is comprised of 96 institutions assembled around the idea of developing an EIC detector envisioned to offer full energy coverage and an optimized far forward detection region. The consortium includes institutions with wide-ranging world-class detector expertise, strong involvement with EIC physics, and an understanding of the DOE approach to project management. Our foundational principles are outlined in this talk from the first ECCE workshop.

After an extensive review by the Detector Proposal Advisory Panel, jointly commissioned by Brookhaven National Laboratory and Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory, the ECCE proposal was selected as the reference design for the first EIC detector.  The ECCE consortium is now working with the EIC project and the EIC community to evolve the detector to a technical design in preparation for a DOE CD-2/3a review in late 2023 and form the scientific collaboration that will pursue the EIC science goals.  

We invite all interested institutions to join the effort to build the first EIC detector!
