Introduction

At the interface of astrophysics, astronomy, cosmology, and elementary particle physics a new field of research is under rapid development: astroparticle physics. In this interdisciplinary research field several fundamental issues regarding the origin of matter in the Universe are being explored. The subjects being addressed include: cosmic rays, gamma rays, high-energy neutrinos, gravitational waves, and dark matter. On this web site information on the Dutch activities in astroparticle physics can be found.

Actual projects in the field of Astroparticle Physics with Dutch involvement can be found in projects.
