Mission

We support ambitious scientists of any nationality, driven by passion to pursue frontier research that aims to make a difference for society. We follow the principles of scientific freedom, integrity, and responsibility. We help researchers develop their careers through training and mentoring at all levels, and we encourage collaborations among them. We provide efficient administrative support that enables scientists to focus on their research.
