The Particle Astrophysics Science and Technology Centre “AstroCeNT”, which is an autonomous department of NCAC, aims to establish in Poland a new international centre of excellence in the field of particle astrophysics. Its defining profile is conducting high-quality interdisciplinary research and development activities in the exploration of the hidden Universe, notably those related to searches for dark matter and studies of gravitational waves. It is oriented both towards science and related innovative technology with a strong potential for applications in industry and medicine.
The Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) is an international PhD school founded in 2012 as a center for research and higher education in the areas of Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Social Sciences.
The INFN – the National Institute of Nuclear Physics – is an organization dedicated to the study of the fundamental constituents of matter, and conducts theoretical and experimental research in the fields of sub-nuclear, nuclear, and astro-particle physics. Fundamental research in these areas requires the use of cutting-edge technologies and instrumentation, which the INFN develops both in its own laboratories and in collaboration with the world of industry. These activities are conducted in close collaboration with the academic world. The Institute is strongly involved in transferring technology to high-tech industries.
The laboratory AstroParticle and Cosmology (APC) was founded in 2005 by the CNRS, in particular the IN2P3 (Institut National de Physique Nucléaire et Physique des Particules), the University of Paris, the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Énergies Renouvelables and the Observatory of Paris. The lab is organised along five science teams, namely: Cosmology; Gravitation; High Energy Astrophysics;
Neutrinos and Dark Matter; and Theory.
TUM is a public university with a strong focus on research activities.
