Lectures and Conferences

Lecture Series

In 2022, the Niels Bohr Archive and the Niels Bohr Institute will be arranging a series of lectures with scientists from diverse fields of research at the University of Copenhagen.

Each lecturer will address a general theme from his/her own professional perspective, with the goal of creating a potential common synergy and consequently help to create a more coherent and cooperative research at the university. This series will be open to the public.

Auditorium A, Niels Bohr Institutet

Scientific Event 1-2 March 2022

The Niels Bohr Institute will begin the official celebration with a scientific conference 1-2 March 2022. The conference will centre on the groundbreaking fields of research housed at the Niels Bohr Institute and will therefore have a broad focus on research.


International Conference: An Open World

The Niels Bohr Institute will start preparations to gather international scientific researchers and decision-makers for a one-day conference in the spirit of Niels Bohr. The themes are open access to information, and scientific collaboration across continents and nations to solve global challenges that the world is facing.


International conference: Crossing the Disciplinary Boundaries of Physics

The Niels Bohr Archive will be at the forefront of this international conference, which will be held in August 2022.

During the conference, there will also be a large arrangement open to the public, where the highlights of the conference will be presented.

The conference is a cooperation between the Niels Bohr Archives, The Niels Bohr International Academy, and the Niels Bohr Institute.


International Conference for Physics Students 2021 (ICPS)

The International Association of Physics Students (IAPS) is an association of physics students and student societies from around the globe, working to promote peaceful collaborations amongst them. In 2021, their annual meeting will be transmitted from the Niels Bohr Institute.

The local organizing committee for ICPS is made up of a group of students from the Niels Bohr Institute. 

The conference will be online in August 2021. More about IAPA here >>
