FATIMA-NuPNET is a project funded in the first call for transnational joing activities within NuPNET, the ERA-NET for Nuclear Physics Infrastructures. The project aims at the development of advanced Fast Timing Arrays with novel scintillators and photosensors. The determination of nuclear lifetimes of excited nuclear states provides a model-independent method of determining nuclear transition rates, which are of paramount importance in nuclear structure studies. The ultra fast timing method makes use of electronic coincidences between fast scintillator signals for the determination of level lifetimes in the range from ~1 ps to ~30 ns from the time difference between the populating and de-exciting radiation.
