Niels Bohr celebrations in 2022

2021 and 2022 are the centenary years for the establishment of the Niels Bohr Institute and the year in which Niels Bohr received Denmark's first Nobel Prize in Physics, respectively. To mark this special occasion, we have initiated a number of projects that, through a wide range of events and various media, pay tribute to both quantum physics and Niels Bohr's life, work and legacy in today's research.

Read about the background for the celebrations and the official program. Dive into seven exciting themes, all of which stem from Niels Bohr's 100th anniversary celebrations, and find inspiration for the coming Year of Science 2022.

(Due to COVID-19, the majority of the celebrations will take place in 2022, and the dates for the individual events will be determined on an ongoing basis).
