LAPTh, an overview

LAPTh is a mixed research unit (UMR 5108) of the CNRS lapth-lapp(within the Institute of Physics, INP) and the Université de Savoie. It is  located in Annecy-le-Vieux, 5km from the centre of Annecy and about 40km from CERN and Geneva.  The activities of LAPTh are centred around three main areas of research:

  • phenomenology of particle physics,
  • astroparticles and cosmology,
  • mathematical physics in particular field and string theory and  aspects of symmetry. 


Portrait de chercheur David Andriot


"I have the chance to become this year a member of the CNRS within the LAPTh, as a Directeur de Recherche. This is to me an old dream becoming true. Indeed, already in high school, I became interested in theoretical physics of fundamental interactions. I remember some popular scientific works that led me to decide to try to become a researcher in this field. From there, I went to classes préparatoires, then to the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, did a Ph.D. at UPMC Paris 6, and then 11 years of fixed term contracts in Europe, before being finally offered a permanent position. During my stays in Germany (LMU and MPI Munich, MPI Potsdam), in Switzerland (CERN Geneva) and in Austria (TU Wien), my wife joined me, followed then by two children. We all had nice experiences abroad, but we are eventually happy to be back to France, and in addition, to Rhône-Alpes where we come from.

Richard Taillet, nouveau directeur de l’UFR Sciences et Montagne


Richard Taillet, enseignant-chercheur au LAPTh, dans l’équipe d’astrophysique et de cosmologie est le nouveau directeur de l'UFR Sciences et Montagne de l'USMB. Il effectue sa recherche dans le domaine de l’astrophysique des particules. Au-delà de ses activités de recherche et d’enseignement, il ne cessé de s’engager régulièrement dans des projets éditoriaux ou de diffusion de la connaissance, par des conférences grand public et des collaborations avec des grands médias : presse, télévision et radio nationales.

Rohini Godbole has been awarded the Ordre National du Mérite 2021


Prof. Rohini Godbole (Centre for High Energy Physics) has been awarded the Ordre National du Mérite by the French government. This is among the highest civilian honours bestowed by France. She has been recognised for her outstanding contributions to scientific collaborations between France and India, and her commitment to promoting the involvement of women in science.

Her remarkable scientific achievements, in India of course but also internationally have naturally led her to be involved in strong collaboration with French CNRS within the Indo French Laboratory in Theoretical High Energy Physics (IFLTHEP).
