fpuk is an STFC-funded virtual theory centre. Its role is to coordinate theoretical physicists in the UK who work on formal topics in fundamental physics. This includes research into String Theory/M-theory, Supersymmetry, Quantum Field Theory and Gravity as well as related topics. Our mandate consists of three main themes:

·      Foster interactions and sharing of knowledge between UK research groups

·      Organise regular meetings of the formal UK theoretical physics community

·      Represent the theory community within STFC

Other STFC-funded centres are UK Lattice Field Theory, and not least the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology
