Abstract: In this paper we consider a Beta Beam setup that tries to leverage at mostexisting European facilities: i.e. a setup that takes advantage of facilitiesat CERN to boost high-Q ions 8Li and 8B aiming at a far detector located at L= 732 Km in the Gran Sasso Underground Laboratory. The average neutrino energyfor 8Li and 8B ions boosted at \gamma ~ 100 is in the range E u = 1,2 GeV,high enough to use a large iron detector of the MINOS type at the far site. Weperform, then, a study of the neutrino and antineutrino fluxes needed tomeasure a CP-violating phase delta in a significant part of the parameterspace. In particular, for theta 13 > 3 deg, if an antineutrino flux of 3 10^19useful 8Li decays per year is achievable, we find that delta can be measured in60% of the parameter space with 6 10^18 useful 8B decays per year.
