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

2 ERA-NET for Research infrastructures Objectives 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, regional, ministries, governments, Research councils, funding agencies who are all managing research programmes. Long-Term Goal Establish a sustainable action beyond this project to be done ?? (A Standing Committee with direct links to ESFRI, EU-RI, EU-Programmes EU-Countries Representatives)

The first meeting was held on the 26 of January 2012 during the SPIRAL 2 Week in GANIL. The project starting date has been decided by the participants to be 1 st of January 2012A consortium agreement has been requested by the steering committee. A web site hosted by GANIL has been created to exchange information between partners: http://www.emilie- Next steps In 2012, the R&D proposed in EMILIE The simulation and design of the EBIS debuncher – already started - should be completed (GANIL – LPC Caen – JYFL) The simulation of microwave coupling in the future SPIRAL2/SPES ECRIS charge breeder should have been started (INFN – LPSC) The design of the upgraded ECRIS charge breeder for SPIRAL – already started - should have been completed (GANIL - LPSC) The next meeting will be held at INFN-LNL in October 2012.

15 Kick off meeting of the NEutron DEtector developments for Nuclear Structure, Astrophysics and Applications (NEDENSAA) The NEDENSAA NUPNET project is an effort to pool available resources and on going R&D by various groups throughout Europe with the aim of providing significant improvements in neutron detection. The project covers the various technologies and methods relevant for the improvement of the detection of neutrons (the chemistry for development of new scintillator materials, testing of the new materials as well as the comparison with existing ones, the study of innovative concepts for neutron detection, scintillator readout with SiPM, digital electronics as well as the study of the optimal geometry of the neutron detectors with other detector arrays (such as Ge arrays). Participating institutions (in a.o.): CEA (France), CIEMAT (Spain OK), CNRS/IN2P3 (France), IFIC (Spain OK), INFN (Italy OK), Institute for Nuclear Research and Nuclear Energy (Bulgaria), The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, Technical University Dresden (Germany OK), University of Jyvaskyla (Finland), University of Uppsala (Sweden). Dates: Wednesday, February 15, 2012 - 09:30 to Friday, February 17, 2012 - 14:00 Location: CIEMAT Building 1, Room B (Sala B)NUPNET NEDENSAA - NUPNET project meeting


17 Present status No FP7 call available Successful pilot call implementation Wide coverage of funding agencies Teams are interested in the pilot call Well organized peer review system Monitoring necessary Keep NuPNET as a brand name Beyond NuPNET

18 GC representatives VOTED as follows: Are we ready to work out a proposal for a NuPNET2? Result: YES* (by 15 votes out of 22). GC representatives agreed to continue to work together in an informal way and to come up with a proposal within 1 year. GC representatives also agreed that NuPNET members, who are not today member of the NuPNET CC, can join the NuPNET CC. Therefore GC representatives agreed that each funding agency should find a solution to pay for their possible costs when working on the proposal for NuPNET2 GC representatives decided that the kick-off meeting of the workshop of Continuation beyond NuPNET should be organized once we have a first draft proposal in view of a NuPNET2. How to move on? Action :Reinforce NuPECC,NuPNET complementarity by building a common working group to discuss the content and goals of the new proposal in 2012

20 WP2 – Results of the Census – NuPNET FUNDING of NP 515M /year

21 WP2 – Results of the Census – NuPNET STAFF EMPLOYED Total 5,918

22 Main Results in NP Nuclear Physics WorkforceNuclear Physics Budget National funding: 459 million FP6/FP7 funding: ~13 million Other funding: ~43 million TOTAL BUDGET: 515 million = more than 90% of the total European budget for NP 14 member countries Number of physicists: 4,050 (~25% are female researchers) Number of engineers/techn.: 1,868 TOTAL WORKFORCE: 5,918

23 Topics for the pilot trans-national call R&D on new detector technologies R&D on EURISOL technologies Targeted action on nuclear structure and reaction theory Involvement agreement signed by the Involved Funding Agencies (IFA) and describing: - terms of cooperation between IFA - proposed budget per IFA and call topics - common call procedure –Calendar of the call - call description Evaluation a three step process: - two anonymous evaluations per proposal (May 1 st until June 30) a peer review panel ranking the proposals according to the anonymous evaluations and their own criteria (meeting on July 12) - final funding allocation following the ranking proposed by the peer review panel and the budgetary boundaries (IFAs meeting on July 13)

24 Application for national funds NuPNET fourth GC meeting, Santiago 3/10/2011 In many countries the funding allocation is straight forward since the NuPNET representation also has control on the budgets. In few cases (Spain, Poland) the NuPNET representation and the funding allocation are two different bodies. In that case the eligible proposals should apply for funding using the national rules and calls. Final decision on the funding per eligible proposal are expected before the end of the year. All projects may start on January 1st 2012.

25 J. Benlliure Projects follow-up NuPNET fourth GC meeting, Santiago 3/10/2011 According to the NuPNET Involved Agreement signed by the Involved Funding Agencies in the first NuPNET call for trans-national proposals, all funded projects should deliver a mid-term and a final scientific reports to the Common Call Secretariat. Each participant should also submit periodical financial and scientific reports and a final report to its national funding agency. Any publications resulting from the funded projects must acknowledge the national funding agencies and the ERA-NET NuPNET, and one copy must be sent electronically to the NuPNET Common Call Secretariat (CCS). Template forms for the mid-term and final scientific reports are being prepared with the following contents: A. Project identification B. Consortium identification C. Project summary for public dissemination D. Progress report (objectives achieved, activities, problems and workplan changes, …) E. Dissemination (publications, conferences, patents, …) F. Bried financial report
