gammapool  CEC - Cordis - Sixth Framework Programme


Next Call for GAMMAPOOL Applications

The deadline for applications to the Gammapool Committee for the use of Gammapool resources for the period January - December 2023 is October 15th 2021.

At present, the resources assessed by this agreement comprise all equipment that was financed from the EUROBALL capital as given in the original EUROBALL Memorandum of Understanding:

* the HPGe and BGO detectors, including the inner-ball calorimeter, the neutron-wall liquid scintillators and the Euclides Si ball,

* the corresponding electronics and the data acquisition system (see caveat below),

* other infrastructure items jointly owned by the collaboration.

All Bids for Gammapool resources must be accompanied by a physics case, a technical case demonstrating the feasibility of the proposal, and a letter of support from the proposing host institution. Requests for prolongation should provide a report. The bids should clearly indicate all resources bid for and detail the period for which the equipment is bid for. Please also bear in mind when preparing the technical case that the EUROBALL electronics is ageing rapidly and cannot be relied on for a campaign, and, due to the need to repair several Phase I detectors, a reduced number of these detectors are currently available.

For any question please contact any member of the Gammapool or myself.

Yours sincerely

Karl Hauschild
Chair of the steering committe
