The cooler synchrotron and storage ring COSY has a race track design with a circumference of 184 m. It delivers polarized and unpolarized proton and deuteron beams in the momentum range from 300MeV/c up to 3.7 GeV/c.
The Mainz Microtron MAMI research infrastructure is a continuous wave electron accelerator, operated by the Institute for Nuclear Physics of the University of Mainz (Germany). It consists of the actual accelerator and major experimental equipment described below. The accelerator consists of two sources for unpolarised and polarised electrons, followed by an injection linac, three consecutive race-track-microtrons and a harmonic double-sided microtron (HDSM) providing a maximum beam energy of 1604 MeV.
The Frascati National Laboratories (LNF), founded in 1955, are the oldest and biggest laboratory of INFN, the Italian agency devoted to fundamental research in nuclear and subnuclear physics and astrophysics. Presently LNF hosts DAΦNE, a high luminosity e+e- collider at 1 GeV c.m. energy (-factory). DAΦNE is a double ring collider of electrons and positrons with 510 MeV energy per beam.

The FTD-ELSA represents a unique combination of infrastructures for hadron physics research and detector development, and includes:

  • the FTD research building with high-grade laboratory space and dedicated instrumentation,
  • the 3.2 GeV electron accelerator ELSA, hosting two hadron physics experiments and a detector test beamline,
  • the Bonn Isochronous Cyclotron, offering 14 MeV/nucleon ion beams mainly for material irradiation.
GSI operates an accelerator complex, which consists of the linear accelerator UNILAC, the heavy-ion synchrotron SIS18, and the experimental storage-cooler ring ESR. Ions ranging from hydrogen to uranium can be accelerated up to momenta given by the maximum rigidity, 18 Tm, of the SIS.
The European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*) in Trento (Italy) offers a unique combination of projects in high-level scientific exchange, dedicated research and advanced training to the international community working in the broad area of Hadronic and Nuclear Physics.
CERN is a European research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. Established in 1954, the organization is located by the Swiss-French border near Geneva and is funded by 22 member states. The lab has 2,500 scientific, technical, and administrative staff members, and hosts about 12,000 world-wide users per year.

Virtual Access

NLOAccess gives access to automated tools generating scientific codes allowing anyone to evaluate observables-such as production rates or kinematical properties - of scatterings involving hadrons.

3DPartons gives access to open-source code necessary for high precision phenomenology in the field of 3D hadron structure, with a specific emphasis on generalized parton distributions (GPDs) and transverse momentum dependent parton distributions (TMDs).

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824093
