The European framework COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) has decided to fund an Action for research on the evolution of the universe by studying the production of chemical elements in stars and stellar explosions. The Action called ChETEC (Chemical Elements as Tracers of the Evolution of the Cosmos) is currently supported by 44 proposers throughout 22 countries. Apart from main proposer professor Raphael Hirschi from Keele University in Great Britain also Gabriel Martinez...
