8 Outreach and training activities Nuclear Physics section at the Spanish Physical Society - outreach and education Nuclear Physics outrearch material - PANSI, contacts with media, …. Training activities - Nuclear Physics doctoral school (several universities, quality label) - Euroschool on exotic beams - GSI summer school Nuclear Physics doctoral school ’07 José Benlliure, MICINN-IN2P3 meeting Madrid, January 2009

9 Spanish participation in FAIR - CIEMAT - IEM (CSIC) - IFIC (CSIC) - IMAFF (CSIC) - Universidad Autónoma de Madrid - Universidad de Castilla la Mancha - Universidad Complutense de Madrid - Universidad de Granada - Universidad de Huelva - UNED - Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña - Universidad Politécnica de Valencia - Universidad de Salamanca - Universidad de Santiago de Compostela - Universidad de Sevilla - Universidad de Valencia NUSTAR: - R3B, HISPEC/DESPEC, EXL/ELISe, MATS - 11 research groups Hadron physics: PANDA - 1 research group Atomic and plasma physics - SPARC, HEDgeHOB - 4 research groups 100 m NUSTAR PANDA Atomic physics Plasma physics - Spain officially participates in FAIR with a 2% contribution - All Spanish experimental groups participate in FAIR experiments - We participate only in 7 FAIR experiments (concentration of resources to increase visibility) José Benlliure, MICINN-IN2P3 meeting Madrid, January 2009

10 Spanish participation in FAIR: facility workpackage: superferric multiplets of the Super-FRS (CIEMAT) - Spain and France will equally contribute to this workpackage (~ 40 M€) - A consortium with France (CEA/CNRS) is foreseen Superferric magnet prototypes for XFEL José Benlliure, MICINN-IN2P3 meeting Madrid, January 2009

12 Strategic plan for Nuclear Physics José Benlliure, MICINN-IN2P3 meeting Madrid, January 2009 Maintain the present scientific programs at existing international collaborations: - CERN (Isolde, nTOF), GSI (FRS-RISING, Aladin-Land), GANIL, … R&D and construction of instrumentation for FAIR experiments - R3B, HISPEC/DESPEC, Elise, MATS Use of the existing small facities in Spain for detector R&D or complementary experiments to the ones performed at large international facilities

13 Future projects José Benlliure, MICINN-IN2P3 meeting Madrid, January 2009 The Spanish Network for Nuclear Physics Research (FNUC) is presently ellaborating a mid- term road-map, some future projects under discussion are: Spiral 2: - The Spanish nuclear physics community has expressed a scientific interest - Synergies on detector R&D between FAIR and Spiral 2 are identified - Other scientific communities in Spain have technological interests: neutron physics (ESS-Bilbao), fusion (CIEMAT) Underground nuclear astrophysics experiment at LSC (Canfranc) - Included in the LSC strategic plan - On-going contacts with INFN and the LUNA collaboration - Workshop on the scientific oportunities for a nuclear-astrophysics experiement at LSC next February at Barcelona AGATA ……

14 Summary We are a relatively small community with modest resources and few infrastructures, but we are quite active in most of the existing facilities in Europe and our resources are progressively increasing Our research interests concentrate around NUSTAR physics, with a lack of activity in experimental hadron physics Our short-term future is dominated by FAIR and probably some smaller projects around national infrastructures Our mid-term road-map is presently under discussion: Spiral 2, LSC, AGATA, … José Benlliure, MICINN-IN2P3 meeting Madrid, January 2009
