The IKP-2 Neutrino Group was established by the recruitment of Livia Ludhova as the head of the group in November 2015. Thanks to the funds from the recruitment initiative of Helmholtz Association, the group has significantly increased in size. Currently, the group has three postdocs, seven doctoral students, and two master students.

The CSC program provides opportunities for chinese graduate students and researchers to study in some of the best organisations all over the world, more information on In our group, A Post-doc researcher and a PhD student, Yaping and Yuhang, have won a scholarship through the CSC exchange programm, allowing them to work at IKP.

The European Physical Society has decided to award the 2021 Giuseppe and Vanna Cocconi Prize to the Borexino Collaboration for their ground-breaking observation of solar neutrinos from the pp chain and CNO cycle that provided unique and comprehensive tests of the Sun as a nuclear fusion engine (link, FzJ press release, RWTH press release).

The main interest of the group is in the low-energy neutrino physics based on liquid scintillator detection techniques.
