Lowdin was the director of the Quatum Theory Project (QTP) for many years. Per http://qtp.ufl.edu/about/ accessed on 7/9/2014: "The arrival of Per-Olov Löwdin (with the rank of Graduate Research Professor of Chemistry and Physics) at the University of Florida in 1960, immediately followed by the appointments of a number of junior faculty (visiting and permanent), marks the inception of the Quantum Theory Project (QTP), an institute for research and graduate education in the areas of Theoretical Chemical Physics and Physical Chemistry. The name itself is worth a historical aside. Long since shortened, the original name was "Quantum Theory Project for Research in Atomic, Molecular and Solid State Theory.""
