Laboratorio de Instrumentacao e Fisica Experimental de Particulas

LIP is the reference research laboratory in experimental particle physics and related technologies in Portugal. The lab is nationwide, with nodes in Lisbon, Coimbra and Braga, in collaboration with local Universities, and nearly 200 members. LIP is the reference partner of CERN in Portugal, and collaborates with ESA and other international scientific infrastructures, such as the GSI in Darmstadt, Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, Pierre Auger Observatory or Sanford Underground Research Facility. LIP is committed to research and development in experimental particle physics, new instruments and methods and scientific computing. The lab is deeply involved in the LHC endeavor, participating in the ATLAS and CMS experiments and also in other particle and astroparticle physics experiments. LIP conceives and builds the particle detection instruments of the future, to be used in fundamental science but also in applications to Health and Space exploration. LIP is a member of the INCD - Infraestrutura Nacional de Computação Distribuída, in partnership with FCCN and LNEC. LIP hosts several tens of graduate students going through an international training framework of international collaborations and PhD networks. Supporting education in science and technology and the promotion of public engagement with science is central for LIP. LIP has a set of scientific infrastructures and competence centres that provide support to its research groups and offer high quality services to the community.

LIP has specific roles in NA3-Jet-QGP, JRA2-FTE@LHC and JRA4-TMD-neXt.

LIP has the responsibility of NA3-Jet-QGP (Jose Guilherme Milhano, Marco van Leeuwen).

EC funds in NA3-Jet-QGP, JRA2-FTE@LHC and JRA4-TMD-neXt.
