FIRST-TF is a cluster of excellence of the Programme Investissement d’Avenir of the French Government. It gathers the main actors in the field of time & frequency metrology in France: laboratories, industry, technical centres. Beyond the creation of an expertise network, FIRST TF promotes the emergence of new collaborative projects within a wide spectrum of applications, from fundamental metrology, fundamental physics to sensors or global navigation satellite systems.
FIRST-TF aims also at increasing the interactions between laboratories and industry, with the will to improve the transfer of technology and know-how. Another important objective concerns the development of innovative education and training offers on time a frequency metrology, with thematic extensions to high precision space-time measurements and their applications.


Free Circulation of Scientists: The principle of the Universality of Science is fundamental to scientific progress. This principle embodies freedom of movement, association, expression and communication for scientists, as well as equitable access to data, information and research materials. In pursuing its objectives with respect to the rights and responsibilities of scientists, the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) actively upholds this principle, and, in so doing, opposes any discrimination on the basis of such factors as ethnic origin, religion, citizenship, language, political stance, gender, or age. IUPAP should only sponsor conferences and events at institutions and in countries that uphold this principle. If scientists are excluded from attending IUPAP-sponsored international conferences by a host institution or country on the basis of any of these factors, IUPAP should register its concern at the highest level of that institution or country, and should not sponsor any future events in that country until such exclusions have been eliminated.

Harrassment at Conferences: It is the policy of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) that all participants in Union, and Union-endorsed activities will enjoy an environment which encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas, and is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. The conference organisers will name an advisor who will consult with those who have suffered from harassment and who will suggest ways of redressing their problems, and an advisor who will counsel those accused of harassment. The conference organisers may, after due consideration, take such action they deem appropriate, including warning or expulsion from the conference without refund.


The Société française de Physique is a recognized public-interest organisation that aims to animate and bring the community of French physicists together : researchers, teacher-researchers, teachers, engineers, doctoral and post doctoral students… The SFP organises many events throughout the year (conferences, seminars, congresses, workshops, visits, meetings…) and recognises oustanding performance by offering international and national awards to young and confirmed researchers.

The SFP is also engaged in the promotion of physics in society : among political and institutional bodies, pupils and general public.



The SIRTEQ project is labeled and funded as a Major Interest Domain (DIM) by the Ile-de-France Region. SIRTEQ brings together the largest European concentration of academic teams in the field of quantum technologies. Its main objective is to promote an excellent academic research in the field of quantum technologies in Ile-de-France, taking into account the actual current societal challenges and the importance of the transfer of knowledge and technologies. The project involves 103 teams, corresponding to 335 permanent researchers or academics, 250 doctoral students, 104 post-doctoral fellows, thus a total of more than 680 researchers and young researchers.The project is focused on Quantum Technologies, in the wake of the “Quantum Technologies” flagship, launched at the European level. When the level of individual quantum objects is reached, quantum properties such as entanglement or superposition become evident experimentally. This paves the way for revolutionary methods to process and manipulate information carried by such objects, and opens an avenue called “the second quantum revolution”, in which the SIRTEQ teams are directly involved. The general objective of SIRTEQ is thus to develop new ways for processing information or making ultra-precise measurements, using new physical supports / quantum supports, rather than classical ones. This has deep implications for computer science, as well as for physics of condensed matter, cold atoms, optics, and metrology. Technological and industrial applications are also in sight, especially in the framework of the forthcoming Quantum Technologies flagship.


PNGRAM (Gravitation, References, Astronomy, Metrology) is a National Programme of the CNRS institutes INSU, INP and IN2P3, with the support of the CNES. The role of PNGRAM is to coordinate and develop activities and projects in France in several related areas: fundamental physics, in particular theories of gravitation and experimental tests of them, space and time metrology, reference systems and celestial and spatial mechanics.
