Mission Statement

Our mission at the Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics (MITP) is to provide unique opportunities for cross-disciplinary exchange between researchers from different fields of expertise in theoretical physics. Our series of scientific programs and short topical workshops attract leading international researchers working in theoretical particle, hadron, atomic and mathematical physics

The scientific activities at MITP are devoted to topics of forefront research in theoretical physics. They are intended to stimulate discussions and collaborations among the participants with the goal of generating new ideas and developing new tools and methods. An annual school provides in-depth training for the future generation of theoretical physicists.

The MITP is an institute driven by the scientific community. Scientists are asked to submit proposals for programs and workshops in their respective field of expertise. Proposals are evaluated on a competitive basis by internationally distinguished experts of the MITP Advisory Board.

We are committed to increasing diversity in all our activities.

MITP is part of the PRISMA+ Cluster of Excellence.
