Romania in FAIR

Romania signed the FAIR Convention on 4 October 2010 in Wiesbaden and declared its contribution to the FAIR construction to be 11.8 M€.

Since 2008, The Romanian National Authority for Scientific Research (ANCS) financed the RO-FAIR project, in support to the FP7 Project "FAIR Preparatory Phase" to which Romania was part. RO-FAIR created a Committee for the Romanian participation to FAIR which became operational in 2008. The role of the Committee was to coordinate the actions of different institutions (research, education, industry) involved in the FAIR project and to ensure the intercommunication between them and with the FAIR organisms. As a result of these concerted actions, Romania signed in August 2010 the Founding Act of the FAIR Company.

Presently, the activity of the Committee is coordinated by ANCS and its chairmanship is ensured by Prof. N. V. Zamfir, General Director of IFIN-HH.

The Romanian shareholder is the National Authority for Scientific Research which is represented in the FAIR Council by Mr. Ionel Andrei, General Director.
