The Paris Center for Cosmological Physics is part of the Astroparticule et Cosmologie laboratory, APC (a mixed research unit of the CNRS/Université de Paris, CEA and Observatoire de Paris). It is a place of research, education, and exchange on the physics of the Universe. 

The physics of the Universe can be seen as a pillar for a universal scientific culture. By questioning our common sense and understanding, it pushes us to discuss, exchange, and reflect. The members of PCCP are persuaded that, even though complex, this science is accessible to everyone and that it can have a meaningful impact in building a knowledge-based society. Beyond scientists, the PCCP wishes to address all researchers, teachers and professors, as well as science enthusiasts to share this great adventure to the frontiers of knowledge.
