This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730989.

IDEAAL started on January 1st, 2017, initially for three years with a total budget of 3,88 M€.

The objectives of the IDEAAL Project are to explore all possibilities to develop GANIL infrastructure, with its new ESFRI SPIRAL2 facility, in order to ensure its long-term sustainability as one of the premiere European research institutes for nuclear physics, interdisciplinary sciences and related applications.

These objectives are:


To enlarge the present GANIL membership


To enhance the excellence of access to the infrastructure


To develop innovation


To strengthen communication towards all publics

Fulfilling all of these four objectives will allow a well-organized, highly efficient and sustainable development of the GANIL infrastructure.
