Three VR Grants to Nordita

Nordita WINQ Fellow Soon Hoe Lim was awarded a four-year VR starting grant "Randomness in Dynamical Systems and Machine Learning". Theoretical and empirical advances in modern machine learning and AI have been informed by the state-of-the-art developments in multiple disciplines such as mathematics. The main object of Soon Hoe's project is to investigate the roles of randomness in learning with modern neural networks through the lens of dynamical systems.

Nordita Professor Konstantin Zarembo was awarded a four-year VR project grant "What Happens With Quantum Fields at Strong Coupling". The strong coupling behaviour of quantum fields is recognized as an important but very complicated problem. Konstantin's project will address this with the help of large-N expansion, holographic duality and integrability methods.

Nordita Director Niels Obers was awarded a four-year VR project grant "Emergent Spacetime from Non-Relativistic Holography". The aim of Niels' project is to make foundational contributions towards a quantum description of black holes and more generally the emergence of spacetime by extending and deepening our understanding of holography.

Nordita has Moved to a New Building

From Monday, March 8, 2021, Nordita operates from a new building on the new campus area Albano in Northern Stockholm. The building is only 500 m away from the three old Nordita buildings on the AlbaNova campus, where Nordita moved in January 2007 from Copenhagen.

We share the building with an experimental materials science group from KTH Royal Institute of Technology and a group from the Astronomy Department of Stockholm University.

Upcoming event

Light-Matter Interaction in Two-Dimensional Nonlinear Materials


4—15 April 2022


The program will bring together leaders in research areas of light-matter interaction, two-dimensional materials (2DMs), and quantum applications, thus merging these rapidly developing fields.

Coordinators:  Christian Schneider, Habib Rostami, Oleksandr Kyriienko, Philip Hofmann

The Organic Materials Database

The OMDB is an open access electronic structure database for 3-dimensional organic crystals, developed and hosted at Nordita.

Masters of Science Programme in Theoretical Physics

Two-year MSc programme in Physics at the University of Iceland, in partnership with Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics.

The programme aims to provide students with up-to-date knowledge of contemporary physics in the main areas of astrophysics, condensed matter physics, and high-energy physics, as well as solid training in applying mathematical and numerical tools widely used in these fields. The programme also offers a course to develop professional skills such as writing and presenting scientific content.

Further information and application.

Coronavirus information

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Nordita employees (researchers and administrative staff) are currently working as much as possible from home, in line with the recommendations of the Swedish Health Authorities, and recommendations of Stockholm University.

We are currently in the process of scheduling part of the scientific programs and conferences that were scheduled for 2020 and 2021, during the year of 2022.
