Welcome to Bumblebee Institute for Advanced Study (BIAS)

Bumblebee is based on an insect whose ability to fly has sometimes been questioned on theoretical grounds, but which nonetheless is able to fly successfully.

BIAS North Cyprus


To catalyze, support, and disseminate research on questions at the foundations of physics and cosmology, particularly new frontiers and innovative ideas integral to a deep understanding of reality.


To expand the purview of scientific inquiry to include scientific disciplines fundamental to a deep understanding of reality of the nature.

To forge and maintain useful collaborations between researchers working on foundational questions in physics, cosmology, and related fields.

To provide the public with a deeper understanding of known and future discoveries in these areas, and their potential implications for our worldview.
