On Friday, February 5, 2016, the new Indian Counsellor of Science and Technology Rajachandran Madhan from the Indian Embassy in Berlin visited FAIR and GSI. In this role Madhan is also a member of the Administrative and Financial Committee (AFC) of FAIR. His journey to Darmstadt was the first visit to a scientific facility since he took over as counsellor. He emphasized the importance of the FAIR project to India during his visit. India is the third largest shareholder of FAIR following Germany and Russia.

Madhan was welcomed by the FAIR and GSI management. Furthermore he received information about the status of the FAIR project by professor Karlheinz Langanke, Scientific Director of GSI, and, in additional talks, about the cooperation with India. In a joint lunch with Indian students and scientists he got to know about the research and education on the campus. Afterwards he visited the accelerators, the Green IT Cube, the HADES detector, the therapy facility and the FAIR construction site.
