                         substantial advancement of multi-messenger and time-domain 
                         astrophysics. These goals will be achieved through a unique 
                         combination of instruments allowing GRB and X-ray transient 
                         detection over a broad field of view (more than 1sr) with 
                         0.5{\^a}1 arcmin localization, an energy band extending from 
                         several MeV down to 0.3 keV and high sensitivity to transient 
                         sources in the soft X-ray domain, as well as on-board prompt (few 
                         minutes) follow-up with a 0.7 m class IR telescope with both 
                         imaging and spectroscopic capabilities. THESEUS will be perfectly 
                         suited for addressing the main open issues in cosmology such as, 
                         e.g., star formation rate and metallicity evolution of the 
                         inter-stellar and intra-galactic medium up to redshift {\^a}10, 
                         signatures of Pop III stars, sources and physics of re-ionization, 
                         and the faint end of the galaxy luminosity function. In addition, 
                         it will provide unprecedented capability to monitor the X-ray 
                         variable sky, thus detecting, localizing, and identifying the 
                         electromagnetic counterparts to sources of gravitational 
                         radiation, which may be routinely detected in the late 
                         {\^a}20s/early {\^a}30s by next generation facilities like 
                         aLIGO/ aVirgo, eLISA, KAGRA, and Einstein Telescope. THESEUS will 
                         also provide powerful synergies with the next generation of
