INFN, the italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics, brings together researchers who want to discover the mechanisms of the infinitely small as well as of the infinitely large. For this purpose, researchers invent and develop innovative technologies to perform the most precise measurements that humanity can do.
INFN is one of the most prestigious and important Italian research agencies. It conducts theoretical and experimental research in subnuclear, nuclear and astroparticle physics, and technological R&D relevant to the activity in these areas.
The INFN research activities all take place in a context of international competition and in close collaboration with Italian universities, on the basis of established partnerships, spanning decades.
