There is mounting evidence that some of today’s most promising avenues of inquiry in physics lie not within specialties, but between them.
Thinking big is the raison d’etre of Perimeter. We nurture new ideas by opening our doors to the world’s brightest talents, by giving them the maximum research freedom and opportunity, and by sharing our science with the world. We have been given an incredible opportunity, by our supporters and by the universe. Let’s make the most of it.
Here at Perimeter, we have an extraordinary challenge, as well as an exceptional chance: to develop the ideas that will reshape our understanding of the universe, just as Einstein did. Bold as this mission may be, there has never been a better time.
