In our Research Centre there are 40 research groups working at the moment, their fields of research spreads on many areas of physics, biophysics, computer technics and chemistry. You can find detailed informations about the research groups in the Research menu. Our research groups are interested in many domestic and international projects, these are listed on the Grants pages.

Wigner RCP views the training of future specialists as  an emphasized target. Researchers regularly do educational activities (lectures, laboratory practices) on many domestic and international universities, organize international schools, student workshops, continuously supervise many diploma works and Ph.D theses. More information about this can be found on our Education pages.

Copyright by Mindentudas EgyetemeThe acquaintance of the beauties of physics with people at large is aided by such programs, like the Open Day held every year at the beginning of November, and by the many popular science lectures held by the researchers of the Centre, for example, Mindentudás Egyeteme (University of All Knowledge), or a popular science lecture series at the Eötvös University titled "From Atoms to the Stars". You can find some of these popular science materials, although many of the are in Hungarian, on the Popular Science pages, and in the Video store.
