As particle accelerators, such as the LHC, narrow down the experimental limits on supersymmetric particles and other possible extensions of the Standard Model, and as satellite missions, such as WMAP and Planck, probe the very early Universe, this Action aims at fundamental, forefront research exploring the role played by String Theory in these and other areas of Particle Physics, Cosmology and Condensed Matter Physics. The Action coordinates the research of European experts working in these diverse fields, while maintaining a strong commitment to promoting the presence of women in these fields.
