The European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*) in Trento (Italy) provides a broad spectrum of dedicated and structured activities for established and young researchers, theoretical and experimental physicists, from all over the world. ECT* offers a unique combination of projects in high-level scientific exchange, dedicated research and advanced training to the international community working in Nuclear Physics in a broad sense.

This involves low energy nuclear physics (structure and reactions), quantum chromodynamics and hadron physics, physics of matter under extreme conditions and ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions.

Related areas of research include topics in Astrophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Particle Physics, Many-body theory, Quantum field theory, Bose-Einstein condensation, etc.
The goals of the Centre, as stipulated in its Statutes, are:
