The project was jointly funded by the Academy of Finland and University of Jyväskylä within the Finland Distinguished Professor Programme (FIDIPRO). One of the 2006 grants has been attributed to Professor Jacek Dobaczewski of the Institute of Theoretical Physics of Warsaw University, who led the FIDIPRO team at JYFL (Department of Physics of the University of Jyväskylä). The project was realized during five years (2007-2011) and had for its objectives advanced studies in theoretical nuclear structure, in strong synergy with experimental studies performed at JYFL and with other world-wide initiatives to investigate properties of exotic nuclei. The project used and developed most advanced theoretical methods in this domain of physics as well as trained young theorists within the M.Sc. and Ph.D. educational programmes at the University of Jyväskylä.
In 2012 the FIDIPRO project continues and is funded through a new one-year Academy of Finland grant awarded in 2011. The focus of the project moved on to methods that allow for including the low-energy correlations on top of the density-functional methods developed so far.
The new grant allows for maintaining the FIDIPRO activity in 2012, and for hiring several new researchers at JYFL, in close collaboration with the newly granted 2012-2017 Centre of Excellence in Nuclear and Accelerator Based Physics at JYFL.
In years 2013-2017, the project will continue within the new FIDIPRO grant awarded in 2012.
