The Detector Research and Development Committee (DRDC) receives proposals for new detector R&D experiments, evaluates them and decides whether to recommend approval. The DRDC reports to the CERN Director for Research and submits its recommendations to the Research Board. Once DRD collaborations are established, the Committee will request status reports and conduct reviews of their progress
A first DRDC was set up in July 1990 and held its last meeting in January 1995. The role of reviewing the approved R&D experiments was taken over by the LHCC and the SPSC until end 2023. See the information in the CERN Archives website.
