Every year, around 200 visiting professors come to IHES to profit from its exceptional working environment and the opportunity to collaborate with other researchers of the scientific community and to participate in the IHES activities. The IHES general visiting programme allows a group of selected candidates to visit the Institute during a limited period of time, proposed by the candidate and approved by the Scientific Council. Visiting professors at IHES are offered a per diem, office space, free accomodation in the Institute’s residence and free lunch at the Institute’s cafeteria on week days.
Applications for the general visiting programme are assessed twice a year by the Institute’s Scientific Council. The next selection will take place in December 2020.
