The CONFORM project, recently funded as part of the UK 'Basic Technology' initiative, will build a 20 MeV Non-Scaling FFAG (EMMA) at Daresbury. The experience gained will be used for the design of a proton machine (PAMELA) for medical research, and other applications for Non-Scaling FFAGs in different regimes will be explored. The successful development of this type of accelerator will provide many opportunities for increased exploitation, especially for hadron therapy for treatment of tumours, and the project provides a framework where machine builders will work with potential user communities to maximise the synergies and help this to happen successfully.
