Jörg-Uwe Hahn, member of the FDP fraction of the Hessian Parliament, recently visited FAIR and GSI. The politician and former Hessian Minister of Justice informed himself about current research and the progress of the FAIR construction project, one of the largest research projects for cutting-edge research worldwide. Jörg-Uwe Hahn, who came to the campus together with party colleague Dr. Dierk Molter, honorary city councillor in Darmstadt, was received by the Scientific Managing Director Professor Paolo Giubellino, the Administrative Managing Director Ursula Weyrich and the Technical Managing Director Jörg Blaurock s well as Ingo Peter, the Head of Public Relations.
After a presentation about the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the future accelerator center FAIR, there was also an opportunity for exchange, for example about the strategic goals for FAIR and GSI. Afterwards, a tour of the existing accelerator facility and the FAIR construction site was on the agenda.
During the tour of the construction site, Jörg-Uwe Hahn and Dr. Dierk Molter were able to take a direct look at the work on the 20-hectare site, for example the ongoing shell construction work for the central ring accelerator SIS100 and the excavation pit for the first of the future large-scale experiment stations to be built.
