FOM – Institute for Plasma Physics Rijnhuizen

Rijnhuizen is one of the three research institutes of the Foundation for fundamental research on matter (FOM), the funding organization for physics in the Netherlands. The primary goal of FOM is to promote fundamental research on matter for the advancement of science. At DIFFER, we are carrying out groundbreaking fundamental research on energy. Their research focuses on two major energy themes: 1) research into fusion energy as a clean, safe and sustainable energy source and 2) research into the conversion and storage of sustainable energy in solar fuels..

National Institute for Nuclear Physics and High Energy Physics (NIKHEF)

NIKHEF is the National Institute for Nuclear Physics and High Energy Physics in the Netherlands, in which the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM), the Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA), the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VUA), the Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen (RU) and the Universiteit Utrecht (UU) collaborate. NIKHEF co-ordinates and supports all activities in experimental subatomic (high energy) physics in the Netherlands.

NIKHEF is located in the Amsterdam Science Park –

Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics – AMOLF

Using the tools of physics and design principles, AMOLF researchers study complex matter, such as light at the nanoscale, living matter, designer matter and nanoscale solar cells. These insights open up opportunities to create new functional materials and to find solutions to societal challenges.

The Nuclear Research & Consultancy Group (NRG), Petten

NRG is an internationally operating nuclear service provider. The company produces isotopes, conducts nuclear technology research, is a safety and reliability consultant for nuclear installations and a radiation protection service provider. Research is being conducted for governments to develop knowledge about nuclear technology.

NRG is the market leader in the supply of medical isotopes in the world. NRG is the authority in the Netherlands in the field of integral radiation protection. NRG operates the High Flux Reactor, which is owned by the European Union.

Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Reseach NWO

NWO funds thousands of top researchers at universities and institutes and steers the course of Dutch science by means of subsidies and research programmes, among other things in the nuclear field.

PALLAS reactor

PALLAS is the new medical isotopes reactor that will replace the old HFR-reactor in Petten. The arrival of the PALLAS-reactor will enable the Netherlands to continue to help millions of people and even save lives for the next 50 years. PALLAS will start with activities to produce medical isotopes from 2025 for diagnosis, therapy, but also (medical) nuclear research.
