The understanding of the equation of state (EOS) of isospin-asymmetric nuclear matter around saturation density is of crucial importance for the description of exotic nuclei and astrophysical processes. The symmetry energy, describing the isospin-dependence of the EOS, is parametrized by its value at saturation (J) and the slope (L), with the latter quantity still poorly constrained. For this purpose, we aim to experimentally determine the values of selected observables exhibiting sensitivity to varying L in calculations within the scope of energy density functional theory. The newly upgraded R3B setup with the R3B-GLAD spectrometer and the NeuLAND neutron detector at GSI provide a unique opportunity to determine the Coulomb excitation and neutron-removal cross sections of heavy neutron-rich nuclei at energies between 400 and 1000 MeV/nucleon. The dipole response of stable nuclei will be investigated using monoenergetic (GACKO, NewSUBARU) and energy-tagged photons (NEPTUN, S-DALINAC) , complementing the approach with rare isotope beams.
