This Humboldt Kolleg focuses on key issues in particle physics and related fields: the physics of particle collider and precision experiments and of atomic nuclei, how they complement each other and connections between particle physics, gravity and the large scale cosmology structure of the Universe. The meeting is designed to promote synergies and new collaboration between the different sub-fields.
The Humboldt Kolleg brings together Humboldt "family" (prize winners, professors and research fellow alumni) together with younger researchers (prospective future research fellows) and other senior scientists. The Kolleg will emphasize and promote communication and new collaborations between participants. A main purpose of the meeting is to promote awareness of the Humboldt Foundation to young researchers in the central European region.
Participation is by invitation.
