Research & Teaching

LIP is a non-profit scientific and technical association of public utility that has for goal the research in the fields of Experimental High Energy Physics and Associated Instrumentation. LIP's research domains have grown, to encompass now Experimental High Energy Physics and Astroparticle Physics, R&D in Detectors and Instrumentation, Advanced Computing and applications to other fields, especially Medical Physics.
LIP develops a large number of outreach activities, advanced training initiatives, contacts regularly the industrial world as Industrial Liaison Office for CERN and other international laboratories, being also responsible for technology transfer from large international organizations to the Portuguese industry.
LIP congregates the effort from researchers of several Institutions from all over Portugal, in particular from Universidade do Minho in Braga and Guimaraes, from Instituto Superior Tecnico and Faculdade de Ciencias in Lisboa, from Faculdade de Ciencias e Tecnologia da Universidade de Coimbra, from Universidade da Beira Interior in Covilha and from Universidade do Algarve, in Faro.
LIP members participate in 20 experiments, of which 9 are performed at CERN. Among these experiments we may find ATLAS, one of the biggest experiments in the world, where members of LIP at Universidade do Minho (LIP-Minho) are particularly involved.
