1 NuPECC MEETING March 13-14, 2009 Vienna Achim Richter, ECT* and TUD ECT* Directors Report

2 Changeover in the Directorship of ECT* November 01, 2008 Jean-Paul BlaizotA. R. This gives me the opportunity to thank J-P for his great effort in his four years of being Director to bring ECT* forward as a strong and professionally operating institution within the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) and also as an institution of an internationally recognized scientific standing. Thereby he served the community in a exemplary way.

16 Budget and Status of Funding Proposal for the scientific activities of ECT* and the related financial budget for 2009 – 2013 submitted November 20, 2008 to the FBK Preamble Upon the request of November 04, 2008 from the President Andrea Zanotti of the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) the following document summarizes the proposed scientific activities of the ECT* and the related financial budget for 2009 – 2013 under the Accordo di Programma. This proposal contains projects which are intended to be co-financed by the Autonomous Province of Trento within the L.p August 2 nd, 2005, n.14 and outside sources specified below. The budget of 2009 is presented in detail and a projection for the years 2010 – 2013 is given. After 15 years of existence of the ECT*, the present document illustrates both the scientific benchmarks of the Centre and the related benefits for the Province Full text of the document Board Area

17 PAT / FBK: Accordo di Programma is expected to be put in effect soon until then we have to work within 80 % of the budget of 2008 EURONS: Final report has been submitted to the EC in Brussels. (responsible for it is still Renzo Leonardi) FP7: The official fixed start date of the Hadron Physics 2 project has been 01/01/2009. ECT* will be able to use for transnational access, i.e. any workshop, within the next two and a half years. Budget and Status of Funding

19 Contributions from Funding Agencies present

20 New Statutes of ECT* Signed by President Zanotti of the FBK and me on December 19, 2008 Are now posted on the ECT* web page

21 The European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*) was established by the Board of Directors of the Foundation Bruno Kessler (FBK) on October 17th, 2008 as a natural continuation of the initiative undertaken by ITC on December 17th, 1992 and established on January 1st, This document updates the statutes of ECT* in order to make them compatible with the rules of the FBK which administer the Center. By appointment of the European Science Foundation, ECT* is an institutional member of ESF-Expert Committee NuPECC (Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee). Its membership in, and representation on, NuPECC is governed by the Terms of Reference of NuPECC. The Centre carries out autonomously the activities scheduled in the multi annual programme enacted by the FBK Board of Directors (CdA), making efforts to act coherently in the framework of the general goals of the Foundation.

23 European Science Foundation letter to Minister Salvatori

24 Final Remark With the new Regulations – Statutes the ECT* is now fully integrated and operational within the FBK. At the same time, however, a 15 year period of Renzo Leonardi as Scientific Secretary has come to an end. We all know that ECT* owes much of its existence to Renzos early vision, political skillfulness, persistence and tremendous personal commitment. The ECT*, the Board and the whole community are thus very grateful to him for what he has achieved during his 15 years in office. We all wish him the best and every possible success in his new effort to get the first proton therapy facility in the PAT built and into operation and at the same time look forward to a good and lasting relation with the ECT*.
