CRC/SFB 1044: The Low-Energy Frontier of the Standard Model
The Collaborative Research Center 1044 at Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The title of the CRC is The Low-Energy Frontier of the Standard Model: From Quarks and Gluons to Hadrons and Nuclei.
PRISMA+: Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter
The Cluster of Excellence PRISMA+ addresses the basic questions about the nature of the fundamental building blocks of matter and their importance for the physics of the universe. PRISMA+ consists of renowned research groups that work primarily in the areas of astroparticle, high energy and hadron physics, nuclear chemistry as well as precision physics with ultra-cold neutrons and ion traps.
STRONG-2020: EU-Project for the Investigation of Strong Interactions
Within the framework of the HORIZON-2020 research and innovation programme, the European Union supports the investigation of strongly interacting matter via the STRONG-2020 project, in which scientists from 36 coutries are participating.
Important sub-projects lead by scientists from Mainz are the Transnational Access to MAMI and the THEIA network.
