What next?

The long waited detection of the Brout-Englert-Higgs boson is a milestone of Physics in the new Millennium. To this experimental discovery, which completes the theoretical fabrics of the Standard Model contributed a lot of physicists and engineers from all over the world working at CERN, the European Mega scientific infrastructure that has, by now, become a world-wide reference Centre. The Russian and JINR contribution to CERN activities and successes is very large and crucial. The organic agreement between CERN and the Dubna Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) also conveys relevant contributions from others of its Member Countries. The Italian contributions to CERN successes is also very important and conspicuous. For these reasons it is quite timely, particularly in view of the EU Russia Year of Science, officially opened in Moscow November 25th 2013, that the yearly Round Table event Italy-Russia@Dubna would be devoted to discuss the perspective of both Experimental and Theoretical Physics after the assessment of the Brout-Englert-Higgs milestone. It is also evident that the forthcoming event has a built-in European scale.

The goals of the meeting are both to assess, possibly in presence of the Nobel Laureates, the historical significance of this epochal discovery and to explore in a wide overview What next .
