NIKHEF

Represented by SURF

NIKHEF is the National Institute for Subatomic Physics and studies the interactions and structure of all elementary particles and fields at the smallest distance scale and the highest attainable energy.

More information

The mission of the National Institute for Subatomic Physics Nikhef is to study the interactions and structure of all elementary particles and fields at the smallest distance scale and the highest attainable energy.

Two complementary approaches are followed:

  • Accelerator-based particle physics – Studying interactions in particle collision processes at particle accelerators, in particular at CERN;
  • Astroparticle physics – Studying interactions of particles and radiation emanating from the Universe.

Nikhef coordinates and leads the Dutch experimental activities in these fields. The research at Nikhef relies on the development of innovative technologies. The knowledge and technology transfer to third parties, i.e., industry, civil society and general public, is an integral part of Nikhef’s mission.
