We are proud to announce that Professor Alberto Cattaneo is part of the recently approved Simons Collaboration on Global Categorical Symmetries.

The collaboration is led by Constantin Teleman of the University of California, Berkeley and brings together a group of physicist and mathematicians to investigate symmetry in its broadest, most general form. For a detailed statement, please view the original announcement by the Simons Foundation.

The grant is of about 8 million dollars over four years for the whole group consisting of mathematicians and physicists at various institutions. Each node will receive about 500 thousand dollars.

The grant is issued by the Simons Foundation, wich is a private foundation with the mission to advance the frontiers of research in mathematics and the basic sciences. More information

All principal investigators including Professor Alberto Cattaneo can be viewed on the initial Website made by Professor Teleman:

The Institute of Mathematics wants to extent its congratulation to Prof. Dr. Alberto Cattaneo for being a principal investigator in this prestigious collaboration!
