HIP postdoc Mirko Berretti has received the annual CMS detector award 2017 for his outstanding contribution to the CT-PPS system in CMS. Mirko is working at the HIP CMS programme.

The annual CMS Detector Awards are an acknowledgement to the CMS members that, over the last three years, have made or continue to make particularly significant contributions to the project and construction of CMS detectors or parts of them, or to the general implementation of the upgrade projects.
