  GANIL-SPIRAL2 is the only facility in the world today which provides high intensity stable beams, beams of short lived nuclei produced both by the Isotope Separation On Line and in-flight separation technique and soon intermediate energy neutron beams. The heavy-ion accelerator complex of 5 cyclotrons delivers stable beams (C to U) from 1 to 95 MeV/A. The new LINAC will provide the most intense beams from protons to Ni up to 14 MeV/A. These facilities allow the investigation of the nucleus under a variety conditions in excitation energy, angular momentum and neutron-proton ratios. Key questions in the field can be summarized as i) understanding of how regular and simple patterns emerge in the intrinsic structure of nuclei ii) identifying the degrees of freedom, which govern the dynamics of their collisions. The status of the beam commissioning of the SPIRAL2 superconducting accelerator and the corresponding experimental facilities and upgrades for reaccelerated rare ion beams at GANIL will be presented. The talk will also highlight some recent results illustrating their impact at a variety of energy and distance scales from the study of the quantum many body systems, the nucleus.
