Deliver an international venue for research on the physics of nuclei during an era of experimental investigations on rare isotopes.

GANIL, Caen, France

US Participation:
Provide travel and local support for U.S. visits to FUSTIPEN

French Participation:
Provide local support for France-based physicist at FUSTIPEN  

The France-U.S. Theory Institute for Physics with Exotic Nuclei (FUSTIPEN) has been established in order to facilitate collaborations between U.S. and French scientists whose main research thrust is in the area of the physics of nuclei. U.S. participation in FUSTIPEN is in the form of travel grants and subsistence grants to those individuals who are interested in collaborating with French scientists. FUSTIPEN’s purview is in the area of physics of or with exotic nuclei, including nuclear structure and reaction theory, nuclear astrophysics, and tests of the standard model using exotic nuclei. While FUSTIPEN primarily focuses on theory collaborations, experimentalists with theoretical collaborators in France are also encouraged to apply. Funding for FUSTIPEN is being provided by the Office of Nuclear Physics of the U. S. Department of Energy through the University of Tennessee, Thomas Papenbrock, Principal Investigator. Additional local support is provided by GANIL in Caen, France.

If you have an interest in forging new or continuing collaborations with French colleagues, this travel grant is for you. Students and postdocs are encouraged to apply. FUSTIPEN supports both short-term trips and longer term visits.
