International Cooperation

The Institute of Modern Physics (IMP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has always attached great importance to developing and strengthening international cooperation at all levels. Cooperation is active in different forms, such as signing agreements, hosting conferences, symposiums and workshops, and promoting personnel and student exchanges. 

IMP has signed more than sixty cooperation agreements with over fifty universities and research institutes from Asia, Europe, North America and Africa. Among them, the most important ones are the establishment of the IMP-Wigner RCP MAP Joint Laboratory with the Wigner Research Center for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and the Joint Research Center with RIKEN in Japan. 

Furthermore, IMP has formed four international cooperation groups with scientists from Germany, France, the United States and Japan, in the reserach fields of mass measurement of nuclei, atomic physics, ion source technology, and superconducting linear accelerator technology. 

IMP puts a high value on encouraging academic exchange, for it serves as an important bridge for cooperation and creates opportunities for mutual progress. Besides, CAS offers a funding program, called the “CAS President’s International Fellowship Initiative (PIFI)”, to attract talented foreigners to CAS for scientific exchanges and research cooperation. It is open to scientific research personnel from around the globe. 

As research is increasingly global and interconnected, international cooperation is of significant importance to advance scientific endeavors with joint efforts. We are eager to engage in extensive and in-depth collaboration with global partners, working together to push the boundaries of science and technology so as to benefit all mankind.
