The University of Tartu received the keys to a new physics building, the 13,000 square meter Physicum.

Construction work began two years ago, but the need for a new building was apparent before as no less than last five heads of the physics institute had worked on plans to build a new structure.

The building cost 16 million euros, 85 percent of which came from EU funding.

The current head of the Institute of Physics, Jaak Kikas, said the biggest advantage is that research and study are now united under one roof.

He said the new building is close to other University of Tartu science buildings, creating a mini science city, which could see expansion in the future.

Four science centers and 14 physics laboratories will move into the new building, offering new and improved opportunities in physics, materials science and nanotechnology.
