Welcome to the International Institute for Accelerator Applications

"Our mission is to teach, research, and lead developments in innovative accelerator technology and particle-target interactions, with applications for society in medicine, energy, industry and science"

We bring together research in accelerator science and engineering, with state-of-the-art equipment here on campus and the highest energy machines at sites around the world, including the LHC in Geneva and the ESS in Lund.

The Institute has a collaborative approach to research, working across disciplines on a wide range of projects including FFAGs, proton therapy, and ADSRs. We also run a Doctoral Training Centre for PhD students, with 2-3 funded studentships available each year, and a recently added Master's course. We host seminars with speakers from other labs.
