The Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) was established at the University of Tokyo as the World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in 2007 (*1).
The aim of the institute is to facilitate collaboration between researchers from different fields, such as mathematics, physics, and astronomy, allowing them to investigate questions about the universe, including its beginning, mechanism, fate and why we exist.
In addition to the Kavli IPMU research building (*2), located on the Kashiwa Campus of the University of Tokyo, the institute has a branch office in Kamioka, Hida City, Gifu Prefecture, and a satellite office at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition, the Kavli IPMU conducts collaborative research with various institutes in Japan and overseas.

*1. In April 2012, the University of Tokyo received an endowment from the Kavli Foundation in the United States, and IPMU was renamed the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU). *2. The Kavli IPMU research building received the 2011 Architectural Institute of Japan (AIJ) Prize and the 2012 Building Contractors Society (BCS) Prize.
