This topical team focuses on innovative research projects on the interface between quantum physics, gravity and causality, in which Vienna has currently a worldwide unique constellation of expertise. This topical team combines insights from the information-theoretical reconstruction of quantum theory (IQOQI Vienna), with theoretical studies of quantum description of the gravitational field and new experimental possibilities for measuring gravitational effects on and of individual quantum systems (Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna). In addition, preliminary tests will be designed and performed using technology available at the Faculty of Astronomy.
