The Institute of Nuclear Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Debrecen, was established in 1954 with the principal aims to conduct research in fundamental nuclear physics, to develop equipment for such purposes, as well as to apply nuclear techniques in other branches of science and in solving specific problems of practical importance.

The research activities of the Institute are grouped into three main areas: basic nuclear and atomic physics studies, interdisciplinary research and the application of scientific results, which are harmoniously interrelated. Accordingly, the activities of the staff are almost equally distributed among the three main fields: basic research takes about one third of the total research capacity, and the other two thirds are devoted equally to interdisciplinary research as well as to solving practical tasks, making use of experience gained in both basic and interdisciplinary research.

The Institute of Nuclear Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences developed from the Institute for Experimental Physics of Kossuth University, Debrecen. In the Institute for Experimental Physics nuclear research was initiated in 1936 by A. Szalay, the founder and the former director of ATOMKI for more than two decades. After having returned from study-tours abroad, he pursued his work in Debrecen under rather unfavourable conditions with the help of but a few enthusiastic people. After the liberation that work resulted in the developing of the "Debrecen scientific school of nuclear physics" and in the foundation of this Institute in 1954.

The Institute of Nuclear Research is an institution of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences developed from the Institute of Experimental Physics of the Kossuth Lajos University, Debrecen, Hungary.

In the Institute of Experimental Physics nuclear research activity was initiated in 1936 by A. Szalay, the present director of ATOMKI, with the investigation of the excited states of elements of low atomic weight. It was in that year that Dr. Szalay returned from Cambridge, England, where he had been working for six months in Rutherford's institute.
