The Focus Area 1 (FA1) of the International Research Network for Nuclear Astrophysics (IReNA) is concerned with the determination of nuclear reaction rates of critical astrophysical importance in the laboratory using a broad range of experimental approaches, including heavy ion storage rings, deep underground laboratories, intense photon beams, neutron beams, and recoil separators at stable and rare isotope accelerator facilities.
Within FA1 topical meetings will be organized. The first edition is organized jointly between IReNA and the European network activity ChETEC-INFRA. It will take place April 5-8, 2022 at the Rome Global Gateway of the University of Notre Dame located in the center of Rome, IT.
The intention of this topical workshop is to collect information, discover possible synergies and synchronize future activities at different underground laboratories in Europe and the United States. The format of the workshop allows for few overview presentations on key topics in the morning sessions and intensive discussions during afternoon breakout sessions. The goal of the workshop is a road-map for the next 1-2 decades outlining the experimental program in the underground laboratories.
