European Microkelvin Platform

Research at the frontier near absolute zero has long been a powerhouse of ideas in physics and beyond. The principal objective of EMP is the opening up of the milli- and microkelvin temperature regime to nanoscience, condensed matter physics, particle physics, cosmology and instrumentation.

The EMP is a consortium of 20 leading ultralow temperature physics and technology partners in Europe. The main aim of the consortium is the further integration of ultralow temperature research in Europe for the development of new ideas, knowledge, technology, applications and commercial exploitation to enhance further the European research effort and innovation potential in this field. The chosen partners form a coherent group providing a comprehensive portfolio of capacities.

The European Microkelvin Platform has to be seen as the next evolutionary step in the integration and restructuring of European ultralow temperature infrastructure.
