The purpose and goal of the Institute is to contribute to fulfilling the aspirations and legacy of J. Robert Oppenheimer in connection with utilizing science and international cooperation to reduce international tension and -promote sustainable advances in social and economic justice, education, health, and environmental integrity. Oppenheimer was an eminent physicist, the director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory at which the first nuclear weapon was developed, later head of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton University, and a staunch advocate of using dialogue and scientific cooperation to work toward world peace.
