The facility for antiproton and ion research FAIR will produce secondary beams of unprecedented intensities. In order to produce such intense secondary beams and to provide intense primary beams, heavy ion beams of highest intensities will be required. The main driver accelerator of FAIR will be the SIS100 synchrotron. The GSI heavy ion accelerator facility will be the injector of ion beams for SIS100. In order to reach the final intensities above 1011 ions per cycle, the injector chain has to be modified accordingly and the SIS100 has to be tailored to the needs. Therefore an intensity upgrade program of the GSI accelerator facility is ongoing, which comprises developments of the ion sources, of the injector linacs and of the heavy ion synchrotron SIS18. The FAIR - project has been started with procurement of items and first civil construction actions. At GSI a new project structure has been implemented in order to address all GSI inkind contributions to the FAIR project.
