International Institute for Accelerator Applications
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"
Our staff and students 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, with many partner laboratories across the world.
A selection of our results - talks, posters and papers - is available here and our impact on everyday life is highlighted here. You can also find a list of recent research grants. and news stories in the press.
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 and run several meetings and workshops.
Visitors are welcome - directions on how to find us are here.
