The Collaborative Research Center 676 (Sonderforschungsbereich 676) at Hamburg University is a research programme at the interface of Particle Physics, String Theory and Cosmology. Significant developments are taking place in each of these fields, and far-reaching scientific results are expected in the course of the next 20 years.

In order to benefit from the fruitful interplay between these different fields, the SFB includes researchers from many different backgrounds, reaching from Particle Physics, over to numerical modeling in Astrophysics, to Mathematics. Eliminating the traditional borders between these subjects has proven to be inspirational and has led to interesting interdisciplinary research projects.

  • Find more information about the scientific programme at the homepages of the various projects.

  • Various lecture courses are offered to graduate students during the first two years of their education.

The SFB 676 is part of the key research area “Particle, Astro and Mathematical Physics” at the Universität Hamburg.

Upcoming events
  • DESY Theory Workshop – Particle Physics Challenges

    25–28 Sep 2018

    The annual DESY Theory Workshop is organized by the elementary particle physics community in Germany. The focus is on a topical subject in theoretical particle physics and related fields. This year workshop will have a focus on particle phenomenology.
  • PIER Graduate Week

    8–11 Oct 2018

    The PIER graduate week is a yearly interdisciplinary lecture and workshop week for young scientists and offers a wide range of introductory and focus courses in the PIER research fields.
  • The puzzle of dark matter – assembling the pieces

    29–31 Oct 2018

    The conference is meant to bring together theorists and experimentalists of all collaborations in the field of particle and astroparticle physics searching for dark matter. More than presenting the latest results of the searches, we hope to foster collaboration and identify areas for future cooperation and development to enhance future searches at both collider and non-collider based experiments.
