The institute

The Niels Bohr Institute represents physics at the University of Copenhagen.

At the Niels Bohr Institute we research and teach within a broad spectrum of physics areas: Astrophysics, Biophysics, eScience, Solid State Physics, Geophysics, Quantum Physics and Particle Physics.

The institute was inaugurated March 3, 1921, by Professor Niels Bohr. We are approx. 130 researchers, 70 administrative and technical staff, 100 PhD students and 400 students.

The European Physical Society has declared the Niels Bohr Institute as a Historic Site with great international importance for developments in physics and research. The Niels Bohr Institute has been selected on this basis: “This is where the foundation of atomic physics and modern physics was created in a creative scientific environment inspired by Niels Bohr in the 1920s and 30s.” Read more >>
