1 Towards transnational funding of Nuclear Physics Research Infrastructures and associated equipments GANIL-SPIRAL2 AGATA ISOLDE-SPES-ALTO JYVL-LNL-LNS- GANIL--GSI Eastern Network JLAB FAIR ALICE-LHC

2 ERA-NET for Research infrastructures Objectives To contribute to the development of the European Research Area by improving coherence across Europe of such programmes/activities To help developing EU Programmes and Policy for research infrastructures (Very important in relation with future calls in Particular for FP8 aligned with our needs!!!) Eligible partners are only programme owners (National/region/ministries/governments or Research councils and funding agencies managing research programs)

3 List of NuPNET Partners (18 partners repres.14 countries) Partner no.

4 Objectives Acquire a mutual and better understanding of the Funding systems of nuclear physics infrastructures and associated equipments in Europe that is needed for future collaborations. Identification of joint activities to be implemented in the framework of NuPNET. Establish procedures and funding for transnational common activities (variable geometry) Launching of one (or more) joint pilot activity Long Term Goal Establish a sustainable action beyond this project (A Standing Committee with directs links with ESFRI, EU-RI, EU- Programmes EU-Countries Representatives)

5 The NuPNET strategy: Success through a stepwise approach Information exchange and Census of resources for Nuclear Physics Funding Bodies (WP2) Agreement on an Action Plan for Infrastructures (Resource and financial Action plan of Agencies) (WP3) Implementation of pilot projects of the Action plan WP4 Implementation of pilot projects of the Action plan WP participants are Funding agencies and ministries From 14 EU countries

6 The NuPNET strategy: a combined Management Structure

7 Appointed Leaders of NuPNET

15 After long and fruitful discussions at the GC2 meeting in Budapest and in CC meetings of the work done by WP3 (Angela Bracco) a document was issued listing the opportunities for joint activities for NUPNET. NuPNET List of Opportunities FAIR: (FACILITY FOR ANTIPROTON AND ION RESEARCH) R&D for CBM, PANDA, NuSTAR and APPA (on silicon detectors, diamond detectors, silicon photomultipliers, neutron and gamma detectors and gas-detectors for ions) SPIRAL2: The next generation of Radioactive Ion beams facilities of ISOL type for Nuclear Structure and reactions and Nuclear Astrophysics. For this facility developments and constructions of instrumentation (for the specific instrumentation projects S3, NFS, PARIS) are proposed. ALICE: Phase of Nuclear Matter and High-energy Heavy ion collisions (data taking -analysis and detector-upgrade) R&D at ISOL facilities oriented toward EURISOL: Ion-source, target and instrumentation developments at SPES, HIE-ISOLDE, SPIRAL and SPIRAL2. AGATA (European Gamma tracking Array AGATA): operation of the first phase and items for the other phases Nuclear Astrophysics Instrumentation Hadron Physics with electromagnetic probes (JLAB) Nuclear Theory Evaluation and support of nuclear data base ENSDD

16 Under EURISOL_R&D one can envisage the following activities: Target-ion-source developments Instrumentation: Detector development, separator, secondary targets Development of the physics case Under the envelope Detector R&D (common to a number of facilities) one can envisage the following activities: High-resolution, high-rate silicon detectors (including experimental integration) Large-area diamond detectors (TOF, beam monitors) Micropatterned gas tracking detectors (GEMs, Micromegas detector) Si-photomultiplier technologies Neutron detectors Gamma detectors for different facilities Gas detectors for nuclear astrophysics and Nuclear Structure List of Opportunities (contd)

17 Actions Aug 2009-Today and Beyond For the few coming months, elaborating a common Funding Action Plan, a methodology on the selection of trans-national Pilot Actions (Call procedure,COMMON PEER REVIEW FOR SELECTION, FUNDING AND AGREED ON A MOU WITH INTERESTED PARTIES) Conclusion of this process a List of possible joint actions to be funded are among the main challenges for NuPNET and therefore actually being discussed. What actions will NuPNET fund?? Goal: Decision at the GC3 meeting in Paris on Oct. 2010
