About the IceCube group at NBI

The IceCube group at NBI is engaged with both the experimental and theoretical side of neutrino physics and astrophysics, being embedded within the Discovery Center and involving theorists from the Niels Bohr International Academy.

IceCube members at NBI have a broad science portfolio: from searches for high-energy neutrinos from the most violent astrophysical phenomena in the universe such as gamma-ray bursts, supernovae, active galactic nuclei, etc, to fundamental physics probes of quantum mechanical neutrino oscillations and searches for dark matter.

NBI's participation in IceCube was made possible through the support of the Danish National Research Foundation and members of the IceCube groups are also supported by the Villum Foundation, and the Carlsberg Foundation.

About the IceCube Collaboration

Since 2013 NBI has been a full member of the IceCube Collaboration, which includes over 300 scientists from 49 institutions in 12 countries.
