The overall goal is to use theoretical expertise and supercomputers to exploit experimental results to positively contribute to the next big leap in particle physics: “Uncovering the Origin of Mass of all elementary particles”.

The center will also contribute in other equally relevant quests: the understanding of the phase diagram of strongly interacting theories and the origin of bright and dark matter in the universe.

The center is designed to cover the strategic areas of research orbiting around the “Origin of Mass” problem which is the “trait d’union” among them:

  • Electroweak Symmetry Breaking
  • Dark Matter
  • Flavour and CP Physics
  • Strong Interactions
