27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 11 NuPECC: An Expert Committee with a European Strategic Role and International Impact Muhsin N. Harakeh NuPECC & KVI, Groningen, The Netherlands PESC Meeting 27 April 2007 Copenhagen, Denmark
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 22 Initiating Group of prominent European nuclear physicists Establish a committee to promote collaboration between research groups and institutes and formulate policy for Nuclear Physics in Europe NuPECC : established in 1988-1989 Became an Associated Committee of ESF Now an Expert Committee of ESF
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 33 The mission of NuPECC is: To strengthen European collaboration in nuclear science and to promote nuclear physics and its trans-disciplinary use and application in collaborative ventures between research groups within Europe and particularly those from countries linked to ESF. NuPECC is supported by its Subscribing Institutions, Member Organisations of ESF involved in nuclear science research.
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 44 In pursuing its objective NuPECC: defines a network of complementary facilities within Europe and encourage optimisation of their usage; provides a forum for the discussion of the provision of future facilities and instrumentation; and provides advice and make recommendations to the ESF and to other bodies on the development, organisation, and support of European nuclear research and of particular projects.
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 55 Most European countries are now represented in NuPECC
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 66 NuPECC has from the outset strived to establish a network of complementary facilities within Europe. It published the Handbook International Access to Nuclear Physics Facilities in Europe already in 5th edition (2004).
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 77 NuPECC provided a forum to discuss developing fields, projects and programmes in Nuclear Physics. Publications Reports from working groups Nuclear Physics News, a quarterly magazine for the community. Long-Range Plans (LRPs) [Forward Looks]. 1 st LRP in November 1991: Nuclear Physics in Europe: Opportunities and Perspectives 2 nd LRP in December 1997: Nuclear Physics in Europe: Highlights and Opportunities (see http://www.nupecc.org/publications/)
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 88 In April 2004 NuPECC published it 3 rd LRP Based on group reports representing all active fields of nuclear physics (bottom-up approach) Preceded by Town Meeting at GSI, 30 January-1 February 2003 to present the reports, discuss conclusions and formulate recommendations. Start procedure in 2008
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 99 LRP2004 addressed six subfields in Nuclear Physics and considered all construction and upgrade projects of facilities. NuPECC General recommendations Specific recommendations with priorities Roadmap Strong interaction with ESFRI (presentations of NuPECC roadmap at meetings)
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 1010 European Network of Complementary Facilities GSI, Darmstadt GANIL, Caen LNL, Legnaro ISOLDE, Geneva LNS, Catania LNF, Frascati KVI, Groningen COSY, Jülich JYFL, Jyväskylä CRC, Louvain-la-Neuve MAX-Lab, Lund MAMI, Mainz ECT*, Trento TSL, Uppsala HERMES, Hamburg ALICE, Geneva COMPASS, Geneva 1. NuPECC recommends the full exploitation of the existing and competitive lepton, proton, stable-isotope and radioactive-ion beam facilities and instrumentation
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 1111 2 2. NuPECC strongly recommends the timely completion of the ALICE detector to allow early and full exploitation at the start of LHC. 3. NuPECC recommends that efforts should be undertaken to strengthen local theory groups in order to guarantee the theory development needed to address the challenges that exist or may arise from new experimental observations; important role for ECT*. 4. NuPECC recommends that efforts to increase literacy in nuclear science among the general public should be intensified.

27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 1313 After GSI, NuPECC recommends the highest priority for the construction of EURISOL ( EURopean Isotope Separation On-Line) NuPECC recommends joining efforts with other interested communities to do the RTD and design work necessary to realise the high-power p/d driver in the near future

27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 1616 NuPECC submission and presentation of Roadmap to ESFRI was crucial and heavily influenced the process. FAIR: Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research SPIRAL 2: Système de Production dIons Radioactifs Accélérés en Ligne 2 Both are on ESFRI Roadmap. EURISOL: hope to get on next ESFRI list NuPECC is internationally active. It is invited: to be on OECD Global Science Forum, and IUPAP nuclear physics working groups. Exchange/contacts with NSAC (Future JSPS?)
27 April 2007; PESC, Copenhagen, Denmark 1717 NuPECC defined a network of Large-Scale Facilities (LSF) /Research Infrastructures (RI) and coordinated and endorsed the applications of the nuclear physics community within the 4 th, 5 th and 6 th Framework Programmes. The networks supported by EC: * FINA (Frontiers In Nuclear and Astrophysics) * FINUPHY (Frontiers In NUclear PHYsics) * * I3HP (I3 Hadron Physics) * * EURONS (I3 EUROpean Nuclear Structure) * Design studies: EURISOL & FAIR NuPECC is coordinating community plans for submissions to FP7. NuPECC is presently supporting submission of application of NuPNET (ERA-NET for Nuclear Physics); define roles!
