As continuation of this discussion the most recent EWON meeting was held in Warsaw on 26/27 January 2007 The structure Network Coordination Committee R. Broda, M. Harakeh, S. Harissopulos +2 scientists to be elected by the member institutions The final deliverables Report No. 1: WORKING GROUPS “Research activities of Southeast and Northeast European Nuclear Physics Groups at Large Scale Facilities of Europe: Status and Future Possibilities”. Report No. 2 MEMBER INSTITUTIONS “A Mapping Study of Nuclear Science and Technology in the Southeast and the Northeast European Countries: Present and Future”. Questionnaire for the preparation of the EURONS East-West-Outreach Network Activity (EWON) Report on: “Research Activities of Southeast and Northeast European Nuclear Physics Groups at the European Large Scale Facilities: Status and Future Possibilities” I. General remarks The Report should give the summary of the past and present involvement of nuclear physics groups from SEEN and NEEN countries in research activities performed at the European LSF’s with the aim to conclude about the future perspectives and possible improvements. The present questionnaire includes general questions to be directed to all nuclear physics groups from SEEN and NEEN countries collaborating with various LSF’s. The distribution of this questionnaire in each country is the responsibility of local EWON coordinators who should take care for efficient flow of the requested information to physicists selected for the preparation of the summary of research activity at given LSF (the list is given in the Appendix 1). II. Questionnaire: I 1. Information about the research group: Give the name of your institute, city and country, the list of group members (with titles) with possible indication of the group leader and specify in one line the general area of investigation. 2. If your group has any previous (before 1996) history of research in collaboration with the laboratory (present LSF) describe it briefly not exceeding one third of a page. 3. Summarize the physics of the research activity of your group at the given LSF from 1996 – no more than half of a page. Indicate the role of your group (initiating projects or participation in projects led by others) 4. Name the experimental facilities you are using at the given LSF 5. Give as detailed as possible statistical information preferably ordered in three periods years 1996-2000, 2001-2005 and after 2005 a) number of publications and conference presentations resulting from your group research activity at a given LSF b) number of experiments performed, rough estimate of a total amount of beam time, total duration of visits and number of participants c) number of PhD degrees obtained in your group and based on research at the given LSF 6. Describe your group participation in the R&D activity – participation in the Joint Research Activities or in any other activity improving the LSFs infrastructure, as well as gains of your institute from LSFs in improving own laboratories infrastructure. 7. Give any additional information that may be relevant for the Report eg. on: Education – participation in trainings and courses within LSFs (as students or lecturers) Extended stays (over 1 year) of EWON physicists in LSFs, including permanent employment of physicists from NEEN/SEEN countries Involvement in Committees –e.g. PAC, USP 8. Outline the most important achievements of your group research at the given LSF. If you think any of them should be included in the Report as example illustrating physics performed by EWON groups at various LSF’s, prepare its brief, one page, description. These suggestions coming from research groups involved will be considered at the spring 2007 EWON meeting. 9. Express freely your opinion on the present organization of the research collaboration within LSF and give your suggestions for possible improvements. Important remark Since the report will also include the brief outline of the research performed by the NEEN/SEEN groups in other European laboratories and outside Europe, the groups which are involved in such activity are kindly requested to provide the brief information relevant to make the summary of this activity.

Some of these results will then be selected as physics highlights illustrating the appropriate section of the Report.
