Welcome to the official website of the European High Pressure Research Group (EHPRG).

EHPRG is non-profitable academic association established in 1963 which is devoted to science and technology of matter under high pressure. It organizes an annual meeting which brings together hundreds of scientists of various fields, mainly physics, chemistry, Earth and planetary sciences, bio- and food science and technology.

The reasonable size of the group, low conference fees, and a friendly relationship between the attendants have made EHPRG meetings a major event in the European high-pressure community for more than half a century.

Upcoming EHPRG Meeting


The Joint 28th AIRAPT and 60th EHPRG International Conference on High Pressure Science and Technology (AIRAPT-2023), originally scheduled for July 2021, will be held in Edinburgh, UK, from July 23-28, 2023.
The Conference will be held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) and it will be a face-to-face conference only.
Immediately prior to AIRAPT/EHPRG, from the 19th to 23rd of July 2023, a Summer School will take place, also based in Edinburgh, with accommodation provided in University Halls of Residence. The School is aimed at young researchers, and experimentalists wanting a grounding in theory and vice versa.
