Three international research centres for mathematicians from around the world
At the heart of Paris, the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) is one of the oldest international structures dedicated to mathematics and theoretical physics. It organises thematic trimesters, international conferences and regular seminars, and hosts the Poincaré Chair, created in 2013 with the Clay Institute. The IHP also offers a wide range of activities aimed at the general public and will open in 2022 a place dedicated to exhibitions and exchanges between research, education and society, the Maison Poincaré.
On the Luminy-Marseille campus, the International Centre for Mathematical Encounters (Cirm) organises conferences, colloquia, thematic sessions and small group research in residence, attracting researchers from all over the world. The Jean Morlet Chair, which lasts six months, provides an opportunity for conferences, working groups, small group work or events for the general public on a specific scientific theme.
Based in Bures-sur-Yvette, in the heart of Paris-Saclay, the Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques (IHES) is a research centre and a meeting place of reference for interdisciplinary exchanges in mathematics, theoretical physics and any other science related to them. It is distinguished by a research based on people rather than on programmes.
