CARMIN Program

1 two-year postdoctoral fellowship -3 Six-Month Fellowships for combined stays at IHES and IHP­­

CARMIN_2017_engThe CARMIN Project, created as part of the call for “laboratories of excellence” of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research, aims at creating places where mathematicians can exchange and pool their skills in order to solve big scientific issues.

In the ­mathematics field, there are indeed a number of open scientific problems that cannot be solved by a single person. This “mathematical” infrastructure is essential for maintaining excellence in the French mathematical school at the highest international level.
