    Vol. 27, No. 3, 2017, Nuclear Physics News 3

    19 June 2017 was a special day for NuPECC. Indeed, that day the “Long Range Plan for Nuclear Re- search in Europe” was released after approximately 20 months of work for its preparation. From the time it was announced, at the end of 2015, the nu- clear physics community was looking forward to having it ready since this document plays the role of an impor- tant reference and guide for the fi eld for at least the next six years.

    The delivery of long range plans (LRPs) represents the core of Nu- PECC’s mission, which is “to provide advice and make recommendations on the development, organisation and support of European nuclear research and of particular projects.” In the past four LRPs were issued, in November 1991, December 1997, April 2004 and December 2010.

    The process involved in the prepa- ration of LRPs requires dedicated ef- fort from many physicists of the nu- clear physics community and from all NuPECC Members.

    Similar to several countries in the world beyond the European boundar- ies, today Nuclear Physics is defi ned as a fi eld including different research domains sharing the diffi cult but stim- ulating task to study nuclear matter in all its forms and of exploring their possible applications. This knowledge is essential if one wants to address several key issues for the understand- ing of the different stages concern- ing the origin and the evolution of the universe. The subfi elds of nuclear physics defi ned by NuPECC span the areas of nuclear physics and its ap- plications: Hadron Physics, Proper- ties of Strongly Interacting Matter (at extreme temperatures and baryon number density), Nuclear Structure and Dynamics, Nuclear Astrophysics, Symmetries and Fundamental Interac- tion, as well as Applications and Soci- etal Benefi ts.

    Two Conveners and three Liaison Members of NuPECC were assigned to each Working Group corresponding to one of the subfi elds given above. The Working Groups were given the charge to delineate the most exciting physics in their subfi elds, to high- light recent achievements and future perspectives. Draft reports from the Working Groups were presented and discussed in internal workshops and at NuPECC Meetings.

    A Town Meeting to discuss the NuPECC LRP was held at the “darm-

    stadtium” in Darmstadt, from 11–13 January 2017. The Town Meeting was attended by almost 300 participants, including many young scientists. The programme contained, in addition to the presentation of the Working Groups, sessions on future facilities: FAIR, the ISOL facilities (SPIRAL2, ISOLDE, and SPES), ELI-NP, NICA, and the Dubna Superheavy Element Factory, as well as a presentation for CERN from its scientifi c director. For the international context the over- views given by the Chairs of NSAC (USA) and ANPhA (Asia) were much appreciated. The Town Meeting was concluded by a general discussion.

    The recommendations with their wording were extensively discussed, not only at the town meeting but also at the following NuPECC meetings. It is not possible here, due to space limits, to quote them directly in their complete form and thus the reader is invited to read our webpage (http:// www.nupecc.org/pub/lrp2017.pdf).

    In short, the recommendation sec- tion includes the following: (1) a rec- ommendation for the construction and operation of the fl agship facility FAIR with its experimental programme at the four scientifi c pillars APPA, CBM, NUSTAR, and PANDA; (2) support for construction, augmentation, and exploitation of world-leading ISOL facilities in Europe; (3) the exploita- tion of the existing and emerging fa- cilities (the latter being ELI-NP and NICA); (4) support for ALICE and the heavy-ion program at the LHC with the planned experimental up- grades; (5) support to the completion
