Scientific Description
The University of Groningen (Rijksuniversiteit Groningen; RUG) is a public research and education organisation. It has nine broad faculties pursuing research in various fields of science. The Nuclear-Physics Accelerator Institute (Kernfysisch Versneller Instituut; KVI) is the only topical interfaculty institute. KVI pursues high-quality, innovative, front-line scientific research in the fields of fundamental and applied atomic and subatomic physics and educates and trains (graduate) students and post-docs in an international environment preparing them for future careers in industry and academia. KVI actively stimulates and participates in interdisciplinary fields of research, both within and outside KVI, as well as undertakes application-oriented research together with industries, businesses and the public sector. KVI avails of a state-of-the-art superconducting cyclotron AGOR with several major experimental setups, and a low-energy ion beam facility, which both are available to local and outside users. Technical support is provided by a mechanical design office, a mechanical workshop, and electronics and computing departments. Around 120 people work at KVI; about half of them are scientists and students.
