The research framework HEP@VUB was successfully initiated by a VUB Concerted Research Action "Geconcerteerde Onderzoeksactie (GOA)", which started in October, 2010, and rescaled since January, 2013.
The current groups of HEP@VUB are:
- Astro-particle physics
- High-energy astrophysics
- Particle physics experiments
- Theoretical physics
The Pheno team has been founded by the HEP@VUB research action, with the purpose of boosting the connection between high energhy theoretical physics and high energy experimental physics at the VUB.
