The TURIS-IQOQI program initiates and supports innovative research projects on gravitational quantum physics and quantum aspects of space-time, in which Vienna has accumulated a worldwide unique constellation of expertise.

Researchers at the TURIS Research platform (University of Vienna) and IQOQI Vienna (Austrian Academy of Sciences) combine their expertise in theoretical studies of quantum descriptions of gravity and causality, in fundamental information-theoretical concepts for understanding the structure of space and time, and in new experimental methods for astrophysical searches and for measuring gravitational effects on and of individual quantum systems.
