"The project aims at unlocking and strengthening the research potential of the group of the Tandem Accelerator Laboratory of the Institute of Nuclear Physics (INP group) of NCSR ""Demokritos"", Athens, Greece. The action plan of the proposed project includes: a) Mobility of researchers to strengthen the existing trans-national collaborations, establish new ones and facilitate exchange of know-how and expertise, b) Recruitment of young highly-qualified researchers and technical personnel, c) Development and/or acquisition of advanced scientific tools, enabling an active participation of the group in research activities at EU level, d) Acquisition of state-of-the art instrumentation to increase its research capabilities of the laboratory, e) Upgrade of certain accelerator components to improve the group's response to the socio-economic needs of the country and the wider region, f) Organization of scientific events, g) Dissemination and promotional activities including establishment of a user's group. The research program to be realized include: 1.) The study of stellar nucleosynthesis, with emphasis on the so-called p process, 2) The experimental search for critical-point symmetries in nuclear structure, and 3) The development and implementation of novel analytical nuclear techniques related to cultural heritage, biomedicine and environmental control."
