Beta- and isomer-decay spectroscopy are sensitive probes of nuclear structure, and are often the only techniques capable of providing data for exotic nuclei that are produced with very low rates. Decay properties of exotic nuclei are also essential to model astrophysical events responsible for the evolution of the universe such as the rp- and r-process. The EURICA project (EUROBALL RIKEN Cluster Array) has been launched in 2012 with the goal of performing spectroscopy of very exotic nuclei. Since 2012, nine experimental campaigns have been successfully completed using fragmentation of 78Kr and 124Xe beams, and in-flight-fission of 238U beam, approaching key nuclei on both extremes of the proton- and neutron rich sides of the nuclear chart. This seminar highlights some of the experiments performed and results obtained within the EURICA project.
