We are a catalyst for advancing scientific research, strengthening the relationship between science and society, and honoring scientific achievement.

We champion scientific research through Kavli Institutes globally to provide scientists with unconstrained opportunities to drive greater discovery.

We connect and convene people from different disciplines to empower actions that unlock the potential of science.

We honor scientists with The Kavli Prize in celebration of breakthroughs that transform our understanding of the big, the small and the complex.

We recognize the interrelatedness of science and society, and build programs that engage the public in science, strengthen science journalism, and support the vitality of the scientific enterprise.


Exploration of the origin, structure and composition of the universe and everything in it

At our institutes around the world, scientists explore the frontiers of science in astrophysics, nanoscience, neuroscience and theoretical physics.
