Stichting Nederlandse Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek Instituten

Nikhef is the Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics, coordinating and leading the Dutch experimental activities in the fields of accelerator-based particle physics and astroparticle physics, with the mission of studying the interactions and structure of all elementary particles and fields at the smallest distance scale and the highest attainable energy. Nikhef is a partnership between NWO-I (part of NWO, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) and five universities: Groningen University, Radboud University Nijmegen, University of Amsterdam, Utrecht University and VU University Amsterdam. The research at Nikhef relies on the development of innovative technologies. The knowledge and technology transfer to third parties, i.e., industry, civil society and general public, is an integral part of Nikhef mission. The Nikhef collaboration consists of about 210 physicists (70 tenured staff, 40 postdocs, 100 PhD students), 75 technical and engineering staff and 25 support staff and has at present eight experimental research lines (ATLAS, ALICE, LHCb, Gravitational Waves, Dark Matter, Neutrino Telescopes, Cosmic Rays and electron Electric Dipole Moment), and in addition research lines on Theoretical Physics, Detector R&D and Physics Data Processing, supporting the experimental effort. The NWO-institute Nikhef is located in the Amsterdam Science Park. Nikhef’s datacenter hosts an LHC Tier-1 facility and is a colocation for the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), housing about 140 different customers.

Nikhef has specific roles in NA3-Jet-QGP.
