France in FAIR



The French Republic signed the FAIR Convention on 4 October 2010 in Wiesbaden, Germany, and declared its contribution to the FAIR construction to be 27 Million Euros (2005 prices). Two French research institutions, the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), each hold half of the French shares, which accounts for 2.6% of the total FAIR shares.

With its participation in FAIR, France enables its scientific community the access to a high end research infrastructure with a research potential complementary to that of the French low energy accelerator project SPIRAL2 . Since many years, French scientists in CNRS, CEA and several French universities already work in international collaborations to plan and realize FAIR.

France dedicates its participation specifically to the FAIR experiments, with a focus on the research collaboration NUSTAR. Furthermore, planning and constructing the Superconducting Fragment Separator (Super-FRS) as well as the linear proton accelerator p-LINAC will be part of the French engagement to which specialized French enterprises could contribute.
