Research & Teaching

LIP is the main Laboratory in Portugal doing research in Experimental Particle Physics, with a research group of about 70 researchers and 60 PhD, master or degree students, mostly participating in experiments performed at CERN, the laboratory of the European Organization for Particle Physics.
LIP is a private society without profit, which gathers people from all over the country, in particular from Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade de Coimbra in Coimbra, from Instituto Superior Técnico and Faculdade de Ciências in Lisboa, from Universidade da Beira Interior in Covilhã and from Universidade do Minho in Braga.
LIP members participate in 20 experiments, of which 9 are performed at CERN (and two are the big LHC experiments ATLAS and CMS).
