The From Discretuum to Continuum Initiative aims to bridge the gap between the subatomic scale and spacetime.

Since the advent of general relativity and quantum theory, physicists have sought to unify these two pillars to create a theory of quantum gravity. Many candidate theories of quantum gravity use discrete building blocks, but applying those on macroscopic scales remains a challenge. The Discretuum to Continuum Initiative aims to develop the computational tools to broach this gap.
