Based on a multibeam high intensity driver (5mA of deuterons, 1mA of heavy ions) a detailed project study for Spiral2 was started in November 2002 in a large collaboration. Fission rates of up to 1013/s will be possible with standard density UC (2.3g/cm^3), and up to 1014/s with high density (11g/cm^3) UC. Fission may be induced either by neutrons from a converter, or with direct beams. The multibeam driver will allow other high intensity beams, with energies up to 14MeV/nucleon for A/Q = 3. The radioactive ions will be accelerated by the existing CIME cyclotron, with energies of 1.7-25MeV/nucleon.
