Research bridge

Particle Physics, Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology (PAC)

Particle Physics image

This Research Bridge comprise research topics in theoretical and experimental particle physics, astroparticle physics, astrophysics and cosmology.

Both KIT and Heidelberg University have earned an excellent reputation in theoretical and experimental particle physics and astroparticle physics and both play leading parts in international experiments. The long lasting collaboration of both institutions in the conception of novel experiments, in computing, in data analysis and theoretical data interpretation shall be strengthened and their complementary competences be exploited.

Representative examples would be the collaboration between experiment and theory in the conception of novel analysis techniques or research directions, for one, or the collaboration of physicists, engineers and computer scientists in the R&D of novel instrumentation techniques or large-scale data analysis and simulation.
