At present, one of the main options for beam bending dipoles of the SIS 300 synchrotron, under design for the FAIR facility at GSI, is a single layer magnet 7.8 m long, 100 mm in bore diameter, generating 4.5 T. This coil has two main features: it is curved, with a curvature radius of 66.67 m (the corresponding sagitta is 114 mm), and shall be ramped at 1 T/s. Both these characteristics demand challenging R&D, aimed at the development. of the required conductor and winding technology. The paper discusses both these aspects, in the frame of a general ongoing R&D program at INFN, under the name DISCORAP. Its goal is the construction of a short prototype (3.8 m) dipole, fully integrated into its horizontal cryostat, within three years. The R&D program includes: 1) the activities required to develop low loss superconducting wires and cable; 2) the technological developments (at the industrial level) for defining and optimizing the dipole constructing methods; 3) the construction of curved dipole coil winding models; 4) the construction of the complete curved dipole; 5) the test of the curved dipole in a vertical cryostat; 6) the integration of the curved dipole into a horizontal cryostat, for the final test at GSI.
