2.1 million euros for extent of Higgs boson

20 February 2015

The Theoretical Particle Physics group of the Van Swinderen Institute, composed by Prof. Daniel Boer, Prof. Elisabetta Pallante and Prof. Rob Timmermans, is one of the members of the research programme "Higgs as Probe and Portal" which was awarded 2.1 million euros, and qualified as first in the last 'Vrije FOM-programma's' competition.

The programme will address two urgent questions that naturally follow from the Higgs boson discovery at CERN: To what extent can the Higgs boson probe the Standard Model? Is the Higgs boson a portal to new physics? Answers to these questions will shape the future directions in particle physics with wider cosmological implications.
