The Insmi's strategic axes
Recruitment and mobility
To carry out its missions, the Insmi recruits a steady flow of young researchers, a significant proportion of whom work at the interface with other disciplines. It encourages researchers' mobility, whether thematic or geographic (domestic and international, or between institutions).
Transverse thematics and international collaborations
The same commitment to openness shows in the setting up of tranverse thematic research networks and in the support of international conference and visiting centres and in interactions with economics and society. The Insmi may lean on the international reputation of its researchers to also strengthen their international collaborations.
Networking the national territory
The above actions convey their own dynamism to the current network of mathematics laboratories, which are networking the national territory in such a way that every important regional centre holds a scientific faculty mostly covering the whole spectrum of mathematics.
National structures supporting research
The Insmi is keen on supporting researches in their work by offering them national structures supporting research in such domains as computing, numerical resources, documentation, edition and dissemination.
All institutes of the CNRS discuss their development and strategic choices with the Comité national of the CNRS. The Insmi also resorts to the Conseil scientifique de l'Institut (CSI), which serves as a sounding board and prospective board for the institute. Lastly, the Insmi interacts with section 41 of the CNRS, interdisciplinary commission 51 and other sections of interdisciplinary commissions if needed.
