The World Organization for Research in Physics (known as WORP) is a global organization that provides an umbrella for various national-level research organazations, focused on overseeing and coordinating the work of particle physics laboratories and other physics research facilities. Established in 1964, the organization is currently based in Ciudad Independencia, DS, in the southeast suburbs of Villa Constitución in the Ardisphere. The body currently has five members.

WORP's main function is to coordinate internationally the use of particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics research – as a result, numerous experiments have been constructed at WORP member facilities leading to important international collaboration.

WORP has also participated in or coordinated other significant research, including supercomputing and materials science.

Current Membership

Any research organization with a research facility either in operation or in planning may join.
