The Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) and the Physics Department of the "Universita' degli Studi di Milano" jointly carry out researches in variuos scientific fields: fundamental interactions with accelerators, fundamental interactions without accelerators, nuclear physics, theoretical physics and technological research. These activities are developed in international collaboration and scientific networks with Institutes from all over the world.
Research & Teaching

The Milano unit is one of the founding units of INFN and seeks answers to fundamental questions in particle physics using a wide spectrum of methods ranging from particle accelerators, nuclear physics to theoretical phenomenology. The Institute also includes the LASA (Accelerators and Applied Superconductivity Laboratory), located in Segrate, a few km from the town of Milano. LASA has well-established expertise in particle acceleration techniques using radiofrequency or lasers, design of superconducting magnets and resonant cavities, criogeny and vacuum technology.

The particle physics program includes experiments at the LHC collider at CERN (ATLAS, LHCb) and astroparticle experiments: Borexino at the LNGS laboratory, AUGER, ICARUS. Nuclear physics experiments include AEGIS at CERN, LUNA3 at the LNGS and GAMMA. The Institute is also active in GRID/distributed computing and its Computing Center hosts one of the four Italian Tier2's of the ATLAS experiment.

L'Universita' degli Studi di Milano is the largest of the universities in Milano and one of the largest in Italy. The Physics Department also performs research activities in Astrophysics, Electronics, Environmental Phyiscs, Condensed Matter Phyiscs, Nuclear Phyiscs, Medical Physics, Nanotechnologies and Theoretical physics. These are performed in cooperation with the National Institute for Astrophyiscs (INAF), the National Interuniversity Consortium for the Physical Sciences of Matter (CNISM), the National Research Council (CNR). It also hosts the Interdisciplinary Centre for Nanostructured Materials and Interfaces (CIMaINa).

The educational program includes Bachelor and Master in Physics Degree Programmes, a Physics, Astrophysics and Applied Physics PhD School and a Specialization School in Medical Physics.
