Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP)

CHIPP, the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics, is an association uniting researchers active in particle, astroparticle and nuclear physics in Switzerland. The objectives of CHIPP are to coordinate and strengthen the Swiss participation in international projects and committees, coordinate research and teaching activities in Switzerland, and promote public awareness of the field.

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.

Board meetings

The CHIPP Board meeting is composed by the professors with activities in experimental or theoretical particle, astroparticle and nuclear physics and the heads of the experimental and theoretical particle physics groups at Paul Scherrer Institute. Universities without activities in particle, astroparticle or nuclear physics may nominate one representative. Members that have retired from the active professional life or have acquired the status of Professor emeritus may be admitted as Honorary Board Members.

CHIPP Prize 2017 goes to Johanna Gramling

The experimental detection of dark matter is one of the great challenges of current fundamental research in physics. This year’s prize of the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP) is awarded to the physicist Dr. Johanna Gramling for her latest contributions to the search for this mysterious component of matter.
