Focus on FAIR — Lecture series „Wissenschaft für Alle“ of GSI and FAIR goes hybrid


In the second half of 2022, the lecture series „Wissenschaft für Alle“ of GSI and FAIR will be continued as a hybrid format. Interested parties can either attend the event in the lecture hall of GSI/FAIR following a registration or dial into the broadcast of the event via video conference using an internet-enabled device such as a laptop, cell phone or tablet. The program will begin on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, with a presentation by Jörg Blaurock, the Technical Managing Director of GSI/FAIR, on the construction project for the FAIR particle accelerator currently being built at GSI.

Further lectures will deal with the modes of action and possible applications of nuclear spins as well as with the miniCBM experiment, which is already in operation at the GSI accelerator facility as a precursor for the large FAIR experiment to study compressed nuclear matter (CBM). At the end of the year in December, the scientific experiments during this year’s recent operational phase of the GSI/FAIR accelerator facility will be reported in the traditional Christmas lecture.

The lectures start at 2 p. m., further information about registration, access and the course of the event can be found on the event website at

The lecture series “Wissenschaft für Alle” is aimed at all persons interested in current science and research. The lectures report on research and developments at GSI and FAIR, but also on current topics from other fields of science and technology. The aim of the series is to prepare and present the scientific processes in a way that is understandable for laypersons in order to make the research accessible to a broad public. The lectures are held by GSI and FAIR staff members or by external speakers from universities and research institutes. (CP)
