The Casimir Research School is a graduate school for interdisciplinary physics of the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) at Leiden University and the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology. It started formally on September 15, 2004 as the logical outcome of developments in the years before. The core of the research-programme is in the area of physics, with a focus on research-themes which interact strongly with developments and skills in other disciplines (interdisciplinary physics). Casimir offers courses and workshops and coordinates the PhD training of students working with research groups in the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft and the Leiden Institute of Physics. About 120 Ph.D. students, 50 post-docs and 50 senior researchers participate in the school’s programme.
