Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research
Start date: Aug 1, 2007,
End date: Jan 31, 2012
"Subject of this EU project is the implementation of the FAIR GmbH for the construction of the new research infrastructure FAIR. The "Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research" is an integrated system of particle accelerators which will provide high energy and high intensity beams of ions from antiprotons to uranium with unprecedented quality for basic research in different fields of physics. The total costs of the FAIR project is 1002 M€ (investment) and 185 M€ for personnel. Under the supervision of the International Steering Committee the scientific and technical preparations of the project have been evaluated and completed. The necessary legal documents for the establishment of international company FAIR GmbH have been worked out. This EU project concentrates on activities which still have to be successfully completed for the implementation of the FAIR project. The most important task is to achieve an agreement on financial / In-kind contributions to the construction of the facility between the 14 FAIR Member countries and the signing of the Convention, the intergovernmental agreement for FAIR. The Work packages of this proposal are legal issues, finances, governance, FAIR line-management and project management, coordination of research and coordination of accelerator. These activities cover also the start-up phase of the FAIR GmbH, until the FAIR project is successfully implemented. The participants of this application are 12 ministries or funding agencies and 14 research institutions. The activities, subject of this EU project, will be performed by the international project team "FAIR Joint Core Team"."
