The National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) is the Italian research agency dedicated to the study of the fundamental constituents of matter and the laws that govern them, under the supervision of the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR). It conducts theoretical and experimental research in the fields of subnuclear, nuclear and astroparticle physics. All of the INFN’s research activities are undertaken within a framework of international competition, in close collaboration with Italian universities on the basis of solid academic partnerships spanning decades.
The INFN is present in Lombardy with three sections, one of which is the Milan Bicocca section with headquarters at the Department of Physics at the University of Milano Bicocca, Ed. U2, Piazza della Scienza 3, - 20126 Milano.
