The Quantum Hub

Beyond the frontiers of quantum physics

Our Vision

Science has never been more exciting than it is today. Boundaries between disciplines are disappearing, with several far-reaching unifications taking place across diverse fields of knowledge. One of the most fundamental unifications is now driven by physics: we are beginning to realise that the laws of physics at the microscopic scale specifically quantum physics permeate and affect the behaviour of objects at the macroscopic scale, ranging from DNA strands to solar cells, universal computers and black holes.

The Quantum Hub intends to establish a world-class research hub that will take the lead in this ambitious unifying project. Its aim will be to investigate how quantum physics can be extended beyond the microscopic domain into the domain of macroscopic systems, ultimately leading to a more fundamental description of physical reality. The hub will act as a beacon throughout the world, where the best minds will come together to work in a spirit of complete freedom to explore the deepest questions on the ultimate nature of reality.

It will be a world-leading project, where theoretical research in the foundations of quantum physics meets experimental science and connects to other fundamental fields of knowledge, in the spirit of independence and scientific diversity. 

Opportunities for partnership

To create this ground-breaking research hub, we are seeking partnerships with visionary philanthropists who recognise the enormous importance of advancing the frontiers of physics and bettering the world with new knowledge, new technologies and a deeper, richer understanding of reality.

We have outlined the costs to bring this vision to fruition in the document below . This includes funding for the academic firepower needed to drive the innovative and creative explorations of the research hub.

Also included are the costs for physical infrastructure, space and state-of-the-art equipment for experiments to verify and extend the research hub's theoretical work.
