The X-IFU consortium

The X-IFU will be built by an international consortium, involving ESA Member State (MS), Japan and the United States. The consortium is led by Didier Barret (IRAP, PI), Jan-Willem den Herder (SRON, CoPI) and Luigi Piro (IAPS/INAF, CoPI). CNES, the French Space Agency, is the prime of the X-IFU, and the Project Manager is Vincent Albouys. Beside France, Italy and Netherlands, MS contributions are anticipated from Belgium, Finland, Germany, Poland, Spain, Czech Republic and Switzerland.

The different organs of the Consortium are listed below. Only the members of the X-IFU Consortium that have given their consent to appear on this page are listed.
