Summer walking tour



Current research and further projects at GSI and FAIR were the main topics during a visit of Brigitte Zypries, member of the German parliament. The traditional summer walking tour with citizens through her constituency led the politician, who also is Parliamentary State Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Economy and Energy, to the GSI and FAIR campus.

Together with about 50 hikers she was welcomed by the management board, represented by Technical Managing Director Jörg Blaurock. He explained the current state of planning for the FAIR project. Press officer Ingo Peter gave an insight into the research activities and the unique experimental opportunities at the future accelerator facility FAIR.
