Welcome to the website of the Endowment Fund  Physics of the Universe!

The Endowment Fund was established in 2010 with the arrival of George SMOOT in Paris to support the activities of the Paris Centre for Cosmological Physics.

The Fund aims at:

  • Developing research in physics of the Universe, by funding master scholarships, doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships, and by co-financing research projects
  • Sharing scientific knowledge in the field of cosmology and astroparticle, in particular with youth, teachers and the general public
  • Strengthening ties between artists and researchers.
