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 Thien Lam-Trong. Beside France, Italy and Netherlands, MS contributions are anticipated from Belgium, Finland, Germany, Poland, Spain and Switzerland.

The different organs of the Consortium are listed below (last update, 17/03/2017 @ 14:27 am):
