The Institute Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona, ICCUB (IEEC-UB), is an interdisciplinary center devoted to fundamental research in the field of cosmology, as well as to the technological applications of the sciences of the cosmos in general. It is in fact one of the few centers around the world devoted to cosmology from the viewpoint of both particle physics and astrophysics.
Its research is largely driven by the following fundamental questions:
- What are the origin and fate of the Universe?
- Which are the ultimate constituents of the Universe?
- Why does the Universe have its present appearance?
The ICCUB (IEEC-UB) has been awarded the Unidad de Excelencia María de Maeztu distinction by the MINECO. Belong to the IEEC the ICCUB researchers working on Astrophysics, Cosmology and transversal technological lines.
