Twenty-one percent were women.

The following is a breakdown of the major fields of study in 2009: High Energy, Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics 13%; Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics 29%; Mathematics 10%; Earth System Physics 15%; Applied physics 33%;  a Multidisciplinary Lab is focussed on interdisciplinary experimental activities.

In 2009, the number of long-term visitors and post-doctoral research fellows totalled 89. They produced 106 scientific papers.
