What is EQUIPEX S3?
EQUIPEX (EQUIPements d'EXcellence) is a bunch of calls for proposals that aims to provide France with high-level scientific equipment, conforming to international standards, which have become a mandatory requirement for international competitiveness in many scientific disciplines.
|EQUIPEX is part of the French Funding Programme "Investissements d'Avenir".|
The S3 project, gathering 6 partners (GANIL, CEA/Irfu, CNRS/IPNO, CNRS/IPHC, CNRS/CSNSM and INSP), has been selected in the first EQUIPEX call. It will be funded at the level of 7M€ for the construction of the infrastructure , from 2011 to 2014, and for 1 M€ for the running period, from 2015 to 2019.
