Research & Teaching

The Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) was founded in the year 1847. Its mission is to promote science of all fields, in particular fundamental science. The ÖAW (about 1.450 Austrian and international scientists) is one of the leading research institutions in addition to the universities.

The Institute of High Energy Physics (HEPHY) is Austria's largest center for experimental and theoretical particle physics. It hosts more than 60 scientists and technical staff and is one of 28 Institutes of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW). HEPHY is a key contributor to the largest particle physics experiments in the world, such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva and the KEK in Japan. The institute helps building the future of particle physics through its diverse research activities and through its innovative detector developments. HEPHY is educating the next generation of physicists by involving them actively into its research activities. We share the excitement of particle physics with the public through a diverse outreach program.
