DIP Collaboration on Holography and the Swampland
German-Israeli Research Collaboration supported by the DFG
The collaboration is working on developing our understanding of quantum gravity, with a particular emphasis on establishing connections between the theoretical physics fields of gravitational holography and the Swampland program.
The collaboration is set to run for 5 years starting on 2022. It involves two nodes in Israel: Ben Gurion University of the Negev and the Weizmann Institute of Science, and three nodes in Germany: the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik, the University of Würzburg and Universität Hamburg / DESY. It is composed of over 50 members based at the institute nodes.
