In this project, new data on exotic nuclei relevant for nuclear astrophysics will be measured using complementary techniques and facilities. Nuclear binding energies will be studied via precise Penning-trap measurements of atomic masses in the Accelerator Laboratory of the University of Finland. Since elemental abundances in the Universe are very sensitive to nuclear properties, such as masses, the gathered data will make modelling of the astrophysical processes more reliable. The astrophysical impact of the results will be studied in collaboration with leading nuclear astrophysicists e.g. from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics. The results will increase our understanding of the studied astrophysical scenarios, and thus, the origin of elements in the Universe.
