Part of the equation

Perimeter Institute is an independent research centre with a simple strategy: bring the world’s best minds together in an inspiring environment, offer them unequalled research freedom, and enable them to focus on solving the deepest problems in theoretical physics. Why theoretical physics? Because what starts as an idea can change the world.


Perimeter is funded by an ever-growing group of public and private supporters. They know that the best investment we can make is in our own capacity to question, to explain, and to understand.
