Signing of contract with Focused Energy
In the coming months, the Darmstadt-based start-up company “Focused Energy” and GSI/FAIR will explore the parameters for laser-driven inertial confinement fusion. Chief Science Officer Professor Markus Roth of Focused Energy as well as Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Director of GSI and FAIR, and Dr. Ulrich Breuer, Administrative Director of GSI and FAIR, signed a corresponding collaboration agreement.

Dr. Timo Steinsberger, Dr. Veronika Flatten and Christopher Cortes Garcia received the Schmelzer Prize 2022.
Three young researchers have been awarded this year’s Christoph Schmelzer Prize: Dr. Veronika Flatten from the University Marburg and Dr. Timo Steinsberger from the Technical University Darmstadt receive the award in recognition of their dissertations, Christopher Cortes Garcia from the TU Darmstadt for his master’s thesis. With this award, the Association for the Promotion of Tumor Therapy with Heavy Ions e.V. annually honors outstanding master’s and doctoral theses in the field of tumor…

Representatives of WUT and FAIR/GSI inking the GET_INvolved partner program agreement.
FAIR/GSI and Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) have signed a GET_INvolved Programme agreement to deepen their cooperation and facilitate mobility opportunities for junior scientists. Over the longer term, the GET_INvolved Programme will allow students and researchers to complete internships and research visits at GSI/FAIR. It is open to all students and researchers – above all doctoral candidates – from all faculties of Warsaw University of Technology...

Luca Spano was "Artist in Science Residence" at GSI/FAIR.
Luca Spano has collaborated with the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung to carry on research about the concept of invisibility in physics. His aim was to construct images of the unseeable, speculative photographs of the technologically invisible. Notes of the future.

PANDA award winner Dr. Jenny Regina
Dr. Jenny Regina has received the PANDA PhD Prize 2022 for her doctoral thesis at Uppsala University. Her doctoral advisor was Prof. Dr. Karin Schönning. The award was announced by the spokesman of the PANDA Collaboration, Ulrich Wiedner from the Ruhr-University Bochum, at the most recent PANDA Collaboration meeting at GSI. The PANDA Collaboration has awarded the PhD Prize once per year since 2013 in order to honor the best dissertation written in connection with the PANDA Experiment.

Recently, a new step for international cooperation in the FAIR project has taken place: For the first time, a partner from the industry of a FAIR shareholder nation is on board as a partner and sponsor in the GET_INvolved programme. On the campus in Darmstadt, Dr. Ulrich Breuer, Administrative Managing Director of GSI/FAIR, Jörg Blaurock, Technical Managing Director of GSI/FAIR and representatives of the Polish company "S2Innovation" signed the first project associate program...

Heavy-ion synchrotron SIS18 - exterior view.
It is still a glimpse into the future: Astronauts could be put into artificial hibernation and in this state be better protected from cosmic radiation. At present, there are already promising approaches to follow up such considerations. An international research team led by the Biophysics Department of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum in Darmstadt now has found decisive indications of the possible benefits of artificial hibernation for radiation resistance.

Inside the Green IT Cube.
Many of Europe's biggest facilities in physics-related disciplines have just cemented a long-term deal to commit to sharing and processing open data. This agreement was signed at the “ESCAPE to the Future” conference, where partners of the European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructure (ESCAPE) project as well as members of the scientific community and the European Commission gathered at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Science in Brussels…

At "Meet a scientists", school classes are offered the oportunity to discuss with researchers.
What happens in a supernova explosion? Why do we accelerate particles? What does the work of researchers involve? High school students can get to the bottom of these and many other questions in the interactive online events of "Meet a scientist". In a second period from November 21 to December 9, 2022, school classes will again have the opportunity to talk directly with scientists from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) in…
