Gravitational Physics Group
This is an IOP special interest group, which is a community of IOP members focused on a particular discipline, application or area of interest.
Special interest groups allow members to connect and share knowledge and ideas. The IOP funds groups to deliver a range of activities including events, prizes and bursaries. All of our groups are driven by members.
About the group
Gravitation sits on the boundary of particle physics and cosmology. As a special interest, member-driven group, we are interested in how the relationship between gravitation and other forces changes our view of the early moments of the universe and the fundamental structure of matter.
What the group does
We reflect the interest of the physics community and the public in gravitational physics and look at both theoretical and experimental approaches.
We also provide a forum for discussion for these scientific communities.
This prize is awarded for excellence in physics research and communication.
