About the project

The Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) GmbH is a newly constructed European large research infrastructure included in the ESFRI Roadmap. FAIR is of European interest and impact, built at the German national laboratory at GSI Darmstadt.

It covers activities in four scientific pillars: Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM and HADES); Proton Annihilation at Darmstadt (PANDA); Nuclear STructure, Astrophysics and Reactions (NuSTAR) and Atomic, Plasma Physics and Applications (APPA).

Czech research infrastructure FAIR-CZ, included in the Roadmap of Large Infrastructures for Research, Experimental Development and Innovation of the Czech Republic for the years 2016 – 2022, addresses the approach of the Czech Republic to FAIR in general, and access of the Czech communities in nuclear and hadron physics (CBM, HADES, PANDA and NUSTAR), biophysics and radiobiology (APPA), in particular.

The in - kind contributions to FAIR construction  will consist of purchase of key equipment for the ECAL detector of HADES, for the PSD detector of CBM spectrometer, and for the Electromagnetic PbWO calorimeter of PANDA spectrometer.
