About the Kavli Community


The Kavli Institutes are a global network of endowed research institutes engaging in fundamental research in the areas of astrophysics, nanoscience, neuroscience and theoretical physics.

The Kavli Foundation hosts Kavli Institutes Community resources and activities to connect scientists and staff at all 20 Kavli Institutes. The Kavli Institutes Community provides opportunities for the foundation and the institutes to share information and expertise, learn from one another and co-create projects that add value to the community. The community is open to all institute members, past and present, including faculty, postdocs, graduate students and institutes scientific, technical, and administrative staff.

Virtual Kavli Institute Community program and resource pilots will be rolling out over the course of 2021. Some activities span all institutes regardless of scientific discipline, such an institutes email updates, webinar series, and “peer learning groups” on Public Engagement, Research Infrastructure and Core Facilities, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Other activities target specific scientific disciplines or career stages, such as a virtual monthly neuroscience meeting, Slack workspaces, and a variety of annual in-person meetings.

Our vision for the Kavli Institutes is that they will be recognized globally as key enterprises for breakthrough science, excelling in the science itself, and their approaches to doing science. The Kavli Institutes Community will help enable the institutes to create, collaborate and innovate to achieve this vision.
