INFN Roma Tor Vergata
The Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare promotes, co-ordinates and carries out experimental and theoretical research in nuclear physics, elementary particles and their basic interactions. Founded in 1951, at present it consists of 19 structures, located in the major Italian Universities, and 4 National Laboratories that closely collaborate with Universities and national and international Research Institutes. Structures and Laboratories manage their resources with a high degree of autonomy. Scientific activities are planned, verified and checked by five national committees which play an important part with regard to the Institute’s scientific policies.
