The head of the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg, Rector Professor Bernhard Eitel, used a visit to FAIR and GSI to gain an insight into the ongoing construction work of FAIR and the existing accelerator facility and experiments of GSI. He was accompanied by Professor Hans-Christian Schultz-Coulon, Dean of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy.

After the welcome, Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Director of FAIR and GSI, accompanied the two guests on a tour of the FAIR construction site, focusing in particular on the progress of the tunnel construction work for the FAIR ring accelerator SIS100 and for the experiment on compressed nuclear matter CBM.

In a subsequent tour of the existing facility, Professor Norbert Herrmann, who teaches at the Heidelberg University and is spokesperson of the CBM collaboration, explained the large-scale detector HADES and the preparatory setup of miniCBM at GSI. Professor Silvia Masciocchi, also from Heidelberg University and head of the research department ALICE at GSI, gave an insight into the current tasks of the measurement setup located at the European research center CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, in which GSI plays an important role. Professors Yury Litvinov, Heidelberg University, and Thomas Stöhlker, Deputy Research Director of FAIR/GSI, presented the storage rings ESR and CRYRING as well as the experiments in atomic physics. Professor Christina Trautmann, head of the Materials Research department, and Dr. Ulrich Weber and Dr. Walter Tinganelli, group leaders within the Biophysics research department, informed the guests about the efforts of the two disciplines.

After the tour, the rector and dean met with the management and the research representatives for a joint discussion in order to explore further opportunities for cooperation. GSI/FAIR and the of University have been linked in their research work since the foundation of GSI 50 years ago and work closely together through various projects and joint professorships/department heads.
