The Niels Bohr Institute is part of the faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, and the institute has 6 different addresses in Copenhagen
B15-21 Blegdamsvej: The original institute for physics has 4 teams of scientists besides the management, the administration and technical support. Particle physics, quantum physics, eScience, biophysics and theoretical cosmology.
Niels Bohr Building, Jagtvej 128: Researchers in Astrophysics from DARK, DAWN and the Condensed Matter Physics group.
Tagensvej 16: Here you will find the Physics of Ice Climate and Earth section.
The H. C. Ørsteds Institute at Universitetsparken 5: At this address you will find the nanophysics group and the Center for Quantum Devices.
Geological Museum, Øster Voldgade 5 - 7: At this address you will find the Astrophysics & Planetary Science group.
Building 24 and 25
2100 København Ø.
The scientific employees conduct research, and they also educate the students in astronomy, geophysics, nanoscience and basic physics. Moreover, the institute has a presentation of the research areas and the research results.
The scientists are organised in 10 teams/sections, and in connection with these teams the Niels Bohr Institute has 10 centres. A centre receives an external grant, and so it is possible to employ people for long periods of time.
The Niels Bohr Institute has established "the Niels Bohr International Academy". This academy receives a grant of DKK 10 millions from the Danish state. The purpose of the academy is to attract leading researchers for short - or long periods of time in order to promote and enhance research. "The Niels Bohr International Academy" has i.a. the "Summer Institute" with a strong programme.
In addition, the Niels Bohr Institute has 35 engineers and technicians to assist the scientists with experiments etc. They also maintain the technical infrastructure of the institute. Furthermore, the institute has 35 employeed within the areas of administration, communication, and library.
