1 The Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics  JINA mission and goals  JINA growth and development  JINA science and accomplishments  JINA management and community  JINA education and outreach Michael Wiescher

2 An NSF Physics Frontier Center PFC should generate:  Synergy & common forum for community  Forefront research program  Training & education for young scientists  New ideas & projects in the field  New collaboration & communication lines  Service to the scientific community  An efficient & innovative outreach program The JINA mission  JINA forms a community of experimentalists, theorists, and observers in nuclear astrophysics  Develops interdisciplinary research projects in close communication between participants  Advancing students & postdocs interaction and career through workshops, schools, and collaborations  Develops new research tools and techniques  Provides an international hub for new scientific information through traditional web content and social networking  Outreach for K-12 through school projects, summer camps and research participation PFCs have no sunset rule, but require the full re-application process every 5 years!
