Insight into research

 

04.04.2019

Norbert Altenkamp, member of the Bundestag, visited GSI and FAIR. The CDU politician from the Main-Taunus district is a member of the Committee on Education, Research and Technology Assessment. Important topics during his visit on Thursday 28 March 2019 were the progress of the FAIR project and the current scientific activities on campus. He was welcomed by Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director, Administrative Managing Director Ursula Weyrich and Technical Managing Director Jörg Blaurock, as well as Ingo Peter, Head of Public Relations Department.

The politician and former mayor of the town of Bad Soden am Taunus was able to take a close view on the progress of the mega construction site FAIR during a tour of the construction site, from the continuously progressing shell construction for the SIS100 central ring accelerator to the excavation pit for the CBM experiment, one of the future large-scale experimental caves. Afterwards, Norbert Altenkamp was able to gain insights into the existing research facilities during a guided tour on the GSI and FAIR campus. For example he visited the test facility for superconducting accelerator magnets and the Hades experimental setup. (BP)
