1 Christoph Scheidenberger, X Convegno su problemi di fisica nucleare teorica, Cortona (Italy), October 2004 EURONS.....is the approved proposal of the nuclear- structure community to the EC for an EUROpean Integrated Infrastructure Initiative (I3) in Nuclear Structure within FP6.....is very differently organized than the many proposals in FP5.....writing and preparation was initiated and started by FINUPHY in mid of submission and evaluation took place in 2003

2 Christoph Scheidenberger, X Convegno su problemi di fisica nucleare teorica, Cortona (Italy), October 2004 Goals of an I3 Improvement of existing infrastructures* (Joint research activities, JRA) Increase access to existing infrastructures* (Transnational access, TNA) Foster networking and integrating activities (Networks) * Large-scale facilities, laboratories with unique instrumentation, collections and museums, data bases, communication networks, etc.
