The construction of two new-generation complementary RIB facilities in Europe, one based on the in-flight fragmentation or fission (IFF) method (FAIR) and the other on the isotope separation on-line (ISOL) method (EURISOL) is expected in the next 10-15 years. The reaction mechanisms, responsible for the production of the secondary nuclei, along with the technical constrains, have to be considered for the designs of the facilities. In this work, we study which reaction mechanisms can be exploited at best for the production of the secondary beams in the two facilities.
