ENSAR2 (project number: 654002) is the integrating activity for European nuclear scientists who are performing research in three of these major subfields: Nuclear Structure, Nuclear Reactions and Applications of Nuclear Science.

Its core aim is to provide access to eleven of the complementary world-class large-scale facilities: GANIL-SPIRAL2 (F), INFN (LNL & LNS) (I),CERN-ISOLDE (CH), JYFL (FI),  ALTO (F), GSI (D), KVI-CART (NL), NLC (IFJ PAN-Krakow & HIL-Warsaw) (PL), IFIN-HH/ELI-NP (RO) and to the theoretical physics facility: ECT* (I). These accelerators provide stable and radioactive ion beams of excellent qualities ranging in energies from tens of keV/u to a few GeV/u.

ENSAR2 started on March 1st, 2016. It will last 4 years with a total budget of 10 M€.
