The results of a 2-year lasting ESA Topical Team on Fundamental Physics on the International Space Station are presented. The report starts with a short review about the status of fundamental physics and the corresponding theoretical questions and experimental quests. In a further step, the special conditions on the International Space Station (ISS) are related to the experimental requirements. In a last step, experiments are presented which are physically interesting and take essential advantage of the conditions on ISS.
