Investigating fundamental laws of the Universe with state-of-the-art technology

LAPP is at the forefront of experimental research about the fundamental constituents of matter, their interactions, as well as exploring their connections with the large structures of the Universe.

LAPP, Laboratoire d’Annecy de Physique des Particules, is one of CNRSIN2P3 French major experimental research laboratories, is also associated with the local university Université Savoie Mont-Blanc and is member of the Community Université Grenoble Alpes.

Established in 1976 as a national ‘gateway’ to CERN, today at LAPP, more than 150 physicists, engineers, technicians and administrative personnel participate in the research that endeavours to answer issues related to the structures of the Universe and the fundamental laws that govern their evolution, bringing together particle physics, astroparticle physics and cosmology.

LAPP has an international reputation and a recognised engagement in major world-class projects gathering thousands of researchers, demonstrating important scientific and technical expertise in advanced areas, such as particle accelerators, detectors, imaging, microelectronics, ultra-fast electronics, distributed and high performance computing, data analysis digital methods, high precision mechanics and mechatronics.
