Dear colleagues
we are sorry to share the sad news about our dear colleague Bernd. Our thoughts are with the family and friends.


The Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP) is the bottom-up organisation of Swiss particle and astroparticle physics researchers in Switzerland as a legal entity of Swiss law. CHIPP is tasked with coordinating the national efforts in the realm of particle and astroparticle physics.

This is achieved by keeping a continuous dialogue between the particle physicists of different cantonal universities and federal institutes. CHIPP is recognized as the representative of Swiss particle physics both nationally and internationally. It awards yearly a Prize to a PhD student, supports workshops and conferences, organises PhD schools, and develops outreach projects.

Hopp Higgs!

Ten years ago, on 4 July 2012, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations cautiously announced the discovery of a particle “consistent with the Higgs boson” at CERN. In the end it

Produrre onde (gravitazionali) in Svizzera

In Svizzera, le onde gravitazionali fanno molta strada. Non solo furono predetti da Albert Einstein nella sua famosa teoria della relatività generale; I ricercatori svizzeri sono stati coinvolti nei tentativi
