Welcome to the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology

The IPPP was founded in 1999 as the UK’s national centre for particle phenomenology, researching the properties and behaviour of the most fundamental building blocks of nature. Since then, we have grown to become one of the largest particle phenomenology groups in the world. Our research sits at the interface between theoretical particle physics and experiments ranging from particle colliders to gravitational wave detectors. We host an extensive programme of workshops and conferences for the international particle physics community, helping to shape the future of particle physics in the UK. Promoting public understanding of fundamental physics is also central to the IPPP’s goals, particularly with outreach to schools and teachers as well as online content.
