QISS is an interdisciplinary initiative in Quantum Information and Quantum Gravity, bringing together theorists, experimentalists and philosophers. Our research program aims to unravel the Quantum Information Structure of Spacetime. The consortium is supported by the John Templeton foundation (first phase grant, second phase grant) and from numerous smaller grants obtained by individual participating research groups.
The overarching theme investigated is the conceptual role of Information in gravitational physics. This calls for a rethinking of Space, Time and Quantum foundations.
Members of the QISS consortium significantly contribute to the scientific literature concerning the interface between quantum gravity, quantum foundations and quantum information.
