Simulation of liver treatment produced with software MatRad.
On site at GSI/FAIR, 24 interested high-school students were given the opportunity to learn more about tumor therapy with ion beams during a Masterclass in March. The event was hosted by scientists of the Biophysics research department at GSI/FAIR. All Particle Therapy Masterclasses (PTMCs) are coordinated by GSI/FAIR in the framework of the International Masterclasses of the IPPOG (International Particle Physics Outreach Group), of which GSI is an associate member.

The workshop participants
Increasing the safety of astronauts in space and advancing modern research for the benefit of mankind: These goals are the focus of the successful cooperation between the European Space Agency ESA and GSI/FAIR in several research projects. GSI/FAIR is the European facility selected by ESA to study cosmic radiation and its effects on humans, electronics and materials. This includes the research program for "Investigations into Biological and Physical Effects of Radiation (IBPER)", which is…

High-ranking visit on the FAIR/GSI campus in Darmstadt: The Indian Ambassador, H.E. Harish Parvathaneni, was recently a guest at FAIR/GSI. Together with the India Consul General Dr. Amit S Telang from Frankfurt and Science Attaché Dr. Madhusudan Nandineni from Berlin, he informed himself about the progress and perspectives of research at GSI and FAIR and took the opportunity to meet Indian students, researchers and scientists on site...

Participants of the European Cryogenics Days 2023
On two days in March, the European Cryogenics Days (ECD) took place at the GSI/FAIR campus in Darmstadt. The international conference focuses on all topics related to cryogenics, from giant cryogenics applications such as the superconducting FAIR accelerator to hydrogen mobility and lowest temperatures on the tiny scales of cells. Co-hosted by the Cryogenics Society of Europe, the ECDs have been held regularly at various research institutions in Europe since 2015.

Ring accelerator SIS18 at GSI/FAIR
Radiation therapy, manufacturing radiopharmaceuticals, developing and certifying drugs and designing energy-efficient semiconductors and new high-performance materials – these are just some of the different areas that are of great economic relevance. They are also areas in which accelerator-based technologies offer enormous advantages to research and development, in manufacturing and for quality control. However, at present the potential of such technologies is not being fully tapped outside the…

Participants of the conference in Aschaffenburg.
More than 300 researchers from around the world met in Aschaffenburg, Germany, March 27 to 31, 2023, for the "11th International Conference on Hard and Electromagnetic Probes of High-Energy Nuclear Collisions."

Ring accelerator SIS18
The EU-funded project HEARTS aims at providing access to high-energy heavy ion radiation testing facilities for both space exploitation and exploration. Two new radiation-testing facilities open to space applications, such is the promise of the HEARTS project. Started last January, this project will enable testing high-end microelectronics technology for novel space applications, as well as for shielding and radiobiology experiments that will foster human space exploration. GSI, as the most…

Violeta López López.
The "Artist-in-Science-Residence" program to take place again in 2023: "Kultur einer Digitalstadt", in cooperation with GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, the European Space Operations Center (ESOC) and the Hessian Centre for Artificial Intelligence (hessian.AI), has once again awarded three scholarships for internationally renowned artists. The artistic jury and representatives of the cooperating institutes selected three scholarship holders from a total of 187 applications...

Aerial view of the FAIR construction site.
Following a special meeting (March 9/10), the shareholders of FAIR GmbH today decided on the progress of the FAIR project. Due to the excellent evaluation in the scientific review of the FAIR project, the Federal Republic of Germany and the State of Hesse are willing to finance the first construction stage 'First Science' with a supplementary sum of approximately 518 million euros. This means that the foreseen total budget available for the scenario will be approximately 3.3 billion euros.
