Nuclear structure studies at GSI gained recently an increased interest for the present activities as well as for the future project FAIR. A broad range of physical phenomena can be addressed by high-resolution in-beam γ-ray spectroscopy measurements with radioactive beams offered within the Rare ISotopes INvestigation at GSI (RISING) project. It combines the EUROBALL Ge-Cluster detectors, the MINIBALL Ge detectors, HECTOR-BaF detectors, and the fragment separator FRS. The secondary beams produced at relativistic energies are used for Coulomb excitation or secondary fragmentation experiments to study projectile like nuclei by measuring de-excitation photons. Alternatively, the relativistic radioactive beams are implanted into a detector/stopper and their decay can be investigated, or slowed down to the energies suited for the fusion or transfer reactions and a "classical" in-beam spectroscopy. Future ideas born from the experience with the RISING project will lead to a new instrumentation within NUSTAR at FAIR. A number of projects consider a use of γ-ray detectors. In particular, γ-ray spectroscopy will be a main goal of the HISPEC and DESPEC experiments.
