NuPNET organises the NuPNET OPEN DAYS 2

Next Thursday, October 30th, and Friday, October 31st, GSI, the German Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung (PT-GSI) will host the second session of the NuPNET Open Days in Darmstadt.

30 October 2008 - 31 October 2008

NuPNET is an ERA-NET in the field of Nuclear Physics. NuPNET thus stands for Nuclear Physics Network. With a budget of €1.3 million granted by the European Commission through the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) for a period of three years (2008-2011), NuPNET started its activities on 1 March 2008 with a quite ambitious aim: Provide Europe with a more coherent funding of Nuclear Physics infrastructures and equipments.

Fourteen European countries are the founding members of NuPNET: Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Spain and the United Kingdom. They are represented by eighteen institutions from ministries and research.

NuPNET’s second Open Day is organised by the German Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung (PT-GSI) –where the future FAIR facility will be built- in co-operation with the French Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics of the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS/IN2P3), who is the Co-ordinator of the project.

During these two meeting days, five countries will present their national funding system in nuclear physics: Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, the Netherlands, and Germany. Participants from all fourteen member countries of NuPNET are expected.
