DTP: April 30 – June 15 “The 3-dimensional Nucleon Structure” 15 Students and 6 Lecturers TALENT: June 25 – July 13 “Training in Advanced Low Energy Nuclear Theory: Computational Many-body Methods for Nuclear Physics” 22 Students (7 MSc and 15 PhD) and 4 Lecturers (M. Hjorth-Jensen / C. Johnson / F. Pederiva / K. Schmidt) Total time: 45 h lecturers 45 h exercises 2 weeks final work assignments ~ 170 h = 7 ECTS Total cost: ~ 50 k€ (ECT* part: ~ 19 k€) ^

12 Conclusions on TALENT (see also the detailed report by Morten Hjorth-Jensen (MSU U of Oslo) on the ECT* web page: and more general information at Great success of the first TALENT course In 2013 altogether 4 TALENT courses may be run: “Nuclear forces” at the INT (approved): R. Furnstahl and A. Schwenk “Nuclear astrophysics” at MSU: M. Hjorth-Jensen, S. Reddy and H. Schatz ”Nuclear reactions” at GANIL: F. Nunes and J. Tostevin “Density functional theory and self-consistent methods” at ECT* : P. Ring, P. Schuck, S. Bogner, G. Orlandini, N. Schunck, D. Vretenar and Morten Hjorth-Jensen (Project coordinator). The proposal has been discussed at the meeting of ECT*’s Scientific Board on Sep 29 but a decision has been deferred.

13 Final remarks on some matters concerning the ECT* staff
Administrative staff: Serena degli Avancini and Susan Driessen obtained tenure “stabilizzazione” in 2009 Gian Maria Ziglio is on a 2 years tenure track that started in 2011 and he will receive tenure on January 01, 2013. Researchers: Dr. Daniele Binosi obtained tenure within Phase 1 (2007 – 2010) of the so called “Piano programma stabilizzazioni” in 2010 Dr. Dionysis Triantafyllopoulos obtained tenure within Phase 2 ( ) of this programme in 2012 on the basis of “scientific and organizational needs, merits and competence” Junior Postdocs: (i) ECT* may lose one (or more ?) positions because of the present financial situation of Italy (ii) ECT* may be able to fill a position only in case of “a new project cofinanced by funds from outside”

16 Real Expenditure within ECT* BUDGET 2011
(and provisional costs for 2012) The main expense chapters:

17 ECT* Budget and status of funding

18 How might 3rd party funding of ECT* be improved ?
Presently 16 European funding agencies / institutions contribute to the operation of ECT* (MoU: 100 k€ k€) The US is often contributing directly to workshops with organizer(s) from American Universities/Research Labs Countries with 50 users: Austria (51), Russia (52), Switzerland (91) ? Users (33) from Norway (11) + Sweden (22) ? ANPhA countries: Japan (156) + India (16) + Australia (12) + China (10) + Taiwan (5) = 199 visitors

19 Implementation Plan 2013 of the ECT* requested
by the FBK Dear Prof. Richter and Prof. Weise, the moment is quickly approaching when FBK ought to present the Implementation Plan 2013 for formal approval by the Board of Directors. In order to streamline the writing and editing process, a description template was set up for units and centers. We wish to remind you that - in compliance with rules set forth by the local government - the document must be written in Italian. However, a translation in English (tables excluded) of the Italian text may be added (as to make it more accessible to an international readership). Once compiled, the description of your center should be sent back to before OCT. 31, 2012. Best wishes Andrea Simoni Contents: Summary and vision Publications Objectives 2013 Front Edge and New Initiatives Funding Budget Remarks

20 FP7/HP3 and FP7/ENSAR ECT* reconsidered together with the FBK administration a new (more durable) calculation of the so called Unit Cost for Transnational Access to be discussed soon with HP3 Project Coordinator Carlo Guaraldo. The 2nd Collaboration meeting of the JRA07 THEXO will be held at ECT* October 22-24, 2012. Functions of the outgoing ECT* Director (AR) in HP3 and ENSAR should be taken over by the incoming ECT* Director (WW) as of November 01, 2012. The invaluable help of Administrative Assistant Serena Degli Avancini and Senior Research Associate Dr. Daniele Binosi in managing both FP7 projects for ECT* is very much appreciated.
