In the framework of nuclear physics and at nuclear physics facilities a large number of different experiments can be performed which render the possibility to investigate fundamental symmetries and interactions in nature. In particular, the precise measurements of properties of fundamental fermions, searches for new interactions in β-decays, and violations of discrete symmetries have a robust discovery potential for physics beyond standard theory. Precise measurements of fundamental constants can be carried out as well. Low energy experiments allow probing of New Physics models at mass scales far beyond the reach of present accelerators or such planned for the future in the domain of high energy physics and at which predicted new particles could be produced directly.
