Contact: Dezső Horváth

The Research Centre was founded on 1st January, 2012, by the merging of two former research institutes, the Research Institute for Particle and Nuclear Physics, and the Research Institute for Solid State Physics and Optics of the H.A.S.

Wigner RCP is the largest academic research centre in Hungary with more than 400 scientists. Although scientists and students of various institutions and universities of Hungary participate in many CERN experiments, all of those Hungarian groups are led by Wigner scientists.
