Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics
5/5 based on 1 votes.
Perimeter Institute is a community of theoretical physicists dedicated to extending theories of space, time and matter. Perimeter Institute began in the summer of 1999 when Mike Lazaridis, founder and Co-CEO of Research In Motion (RIM) maker of the successful BlackBerryTM found himself in a position to help foster research and innovation in Canada. Howard Burton, a PhD graduate from the University of Waterloo, was hired by Mike as Executive Director in August of that year to best determine how a world-class organization devoted to theoretical physics would take shape. In just five years, Perimeter researchers have contributed over 500 meaningful, peer-reviewed, scientific findings and transferred this knowledge to all manner of partners in the entire research chain. Their current areas of cross-disciplinary research include: Foundations of Quantum Theory, Quantum Information Theory, Quantum Gravity, Superstring Theory, Particle Physics, Cosmology.
