AD Seminar - The Commissioning of FAIR at GSI



The FAIR International Accelerator Facility, one of the largest science projects in the world, is being built at the GSI Helmholtz Center in Darmstadt, Germany. With construction work on the main buildings and accelerator tunnels for the FAIR first science stage nearing completion, the project is soon entering its final phase. Installation of the accelerator components will begin next year, and the first commissioning activities are scheduled for 2025.

For this reason, the planning and preparations for the commissioning phase are currently gathering pace. In this presentation, the current status of the FAIR project and the strategy for commissioning will be presented. The current status of the preparations will be shown and the challenges and risks on the way to the first scientific experiment will be discussed.
