IRN:QFS is born !

IRN:QFS, the International Research Network on Quantum Fields and Strings, has been approved by CNRS on January 24, 2020. It gathers about 200 scientists from 80 research institutes throughout the world.

Negociations are under way with a handful of official foreign partners to establish Memoranda of Understanding. Meanwhile, the IRN:QFS network is up and ready for fruitful exchange of information and knowledge !
