Foundation: 1963

Mission: The mission of the Institute of Physics of Slovak Academy of Sciences(IP SAS) is to understand the physical phenomena at the macro- and the micro scale through experimental and theoretical research. Studies are realized both on our facilities, and in collaboration with leading European and world laboratories. We focus mainly on materials research, nuclear and subnuclear physics, research of quantum information and complex systems. By the popularization of our results we want to attract and motivate talented young people to take up research activities. In cooperation with universities, we want to contribute to the improvement of the intellectual potential of Slovakia by good doctoral studies, to increase its global competitiveness and its ability to face the technological challenges of modern society.

Vision: Institute of Physics SAS wants to continue in the started activities and research projects, and fully endorses Long-Term Development Intentions of the SAS – SAS 2020, which has the motto „Science is the future“.
