NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) will represent the United Arab Emirates (UAE) along with two other universities, the University of Sharjah and the United Arab Emirates University, as a Cluster Institution in the ATLAS experiment, one of the largest collaborative efforts ever realised in science.

ATLAS is a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear and Particle Physics Research (CERN), one of the world's largest and most respected centres for scientific research.

NYUAD, University of Sharjah, and the United Arab Emirates University will cooperate and build up a coherent effort in The ATLAS experiment - one of the largest collaborative efforts ever attempted in science, a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.

ATLAS is a collaboration of physicists, engineers, technicians, students, and support staff from around the world, that continues discovering some of the most important innovative developments in technology and physics in the search for the unknown; exploring and discovering new phenomena beyond existing theoretical predictions.

ATLAS physicists are studying the fundamental constituents of matter to better understand the rules behind their interactions.

Their research has led to ground-breaking discoveries, such as that of the Higgs boson.
