Project Members

The CRISP project is a partnership of ESFRI-PPs (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructure preparatory phase) projects in the field of Physics, Astronomy, and Analytical Facilities. It includes: well established Research Infrastructures currently undergoing upgrades being: ESRF, GSI-FAIR, ILL, SLHC and GANIL-SPIRAL2; plus those under construction ELI, ESS, EuroFEL, XFEL, ILC-HiGrade and SKA.

ELI-PP- Extreme Light Infrastructure Preparatory Phase


Main activity: Lasers

A European facility opening new avenues to reveal the secrets of the smallest constituents of matter on ultra-short timescales, ELI will host the most intense lasers worldwide. The distributed facility will be located on four sites, the first three of them being hosted by the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania.  ELI will be the first large scale infrastructure based on the Eastern part of the European Community..

ESRFUP - ESRF Upgrade Programme

Main activity: Xrays

To maintain its world-leading role, the ESRF implements a ten-year Upgrade comprising new buildings, beamlines and instrumentation, and improvements of its accelerators. ESRFUP,  completed in 2011, focused on detailed definition of Upgrade projects. This included workshops to establish priorities, information of the communities, and in-depth feasibility studies of individual projects.

Main activity: Astro Physics

ESS - European Spallation Source


Main activity: Neutrons

ESS is in the Pre construction Phase, which will go on until the end of 2012. During this phase ESS will update the design of the linac and the target station; and it will also start the design of the first set of instruments that will be ready when the facility opens in 2019.

EuroFEL - Free Electron Lasers of Europe

Main activity: Xrays

IRUVX-PP, the preparatory project to support the foundation of the EuroFEL Consortium, aims to foster the collaboration of Free-Electron Laser (FEL) and  Super Proton Synchroton (SPS) sources and to support novel and wide-ranging studies of matter by a large science community. The preparatory work completed in 2011 included the development of a suitable organisational and governance structure of the future consortium; joint technical developments and associated training activities.

European XFEL - The European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility

Main activity: X-ray-FEL radiation research

The European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility GmbH (European XFEL) leads tasks within the CRISP project in the areas of time-resolved experiments, fast DAQ systems and related data storage and access issues. Based in the Hamburg area, the Company is charged to construct, commission and operate the European XFEL facility. Several research institutes in the participating countries contribute to the European XFEL project, a particular example being the superconducting electron accelerator provided by an international accelerator consortium coordinated by DESY, Hamburg. The European XFEL GmbH takes primary responsibility for all project parts related to the x-ray instrumentation and the future user program. These areas include x-ray generation, transport, and diagnostics plus the scientific instrumentation including detectors, data acquisition and storage, and sample environments.

FAIR-PP - Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research

Main activity: Ions

FAIR is a new, unique international accelerator facility for the research with antiprotons and ions being built near Darmstadt, Germany. It will offer outstanding research opportunities and discovery potential to reveal consolidated findings about unknown states of matter and missing information about the evolution of the Universe 13.8 billion years ago.

ILC-Higrade - International Linear Collider and High Gradient Superconducting RF-Cavities

Main activity: Accelerators

ILC-HiGrade (International Linear Collider and High Gradient Superconducting RF-Cavities.) aims to create at least 24 accelerating cavities, superconducting components made of pure niobium for the planned International Linear Collider (ILC) that reach the high technical standards needed for the planned particle physics project. ILC-HiGrade is developing (a) an organisation and governance model for the ILC and (b) measures to prepare for the actual construction of the collider.

ILL 20/20 - The Upgrade of the Institut Laue-Langevin

Main activity: Neutrons

The Institut Laue Langevin, Grenoble, is a world-leader in neutron-scattering science and technology. Its on-going Millennium Programme ensures the retention of ILL’s premier position through the constant upgrade of its instruments, the enhancement of its infrastructure, and the improvement of support services. The ILL 20/20 Upgrade project, concluded in 2011 as part of this programme, has completed feasibility studies, manufactured prototypes, and designed new buildings and extensions.

PrepSKA - Prep Square Kilometre Array


Main activity: Astro Physics

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be one of the largest scientific projects ever undertaken. It is a machine designed to answer some of the big questions of our time: what is Dark Energy? Was Einstein right about gravity? What is the nature of dark matter? Can we detect gravitational waves? When and how did the first stars and galaxies form? What was the origin of cosmic magnetism? How do Earth-like planets form? Is there life, intelligent or otherwise, elsewhere in the Universe?

SLHC - Preparatory Phase of the Large Hadron Collider Upgrade


Main activity: Accelerators

The SLHC project provides justification of the Large Hadron Collider through the physics results and operational experience from the first years of LHC running to include: the maturity of new technologies required for SLHC, solutions for critical safety issues, and the formation of collaborations for the implementation, including the definition of work sharing and financial commitments.

SPIRAL 2 - Grand Accélérateur National d'Ions Lourds

Main activity: Ions

SPIRAL2 is a linear particle accelerator project for the study of fundamental nuclear physics and multidisciplinary research. Starting in 2012, SPIRAL2 will produce light and heavy exotic nuclei at extremely high intensities. These entirely new particle beams, the only beams of their kind in the world, will make it possible to explore the boundaries of matter.
