The Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES) is an advanced research institute in mathematics, theoretical physics and all related sciences.
The Institute offers exceptional scientists a place where they can devote entirely to their research, without any obligation of teaching or administrative tasks.
"A total freedom of research for outstanding researchers."
A foundation in the public interest since 1981, IHES has needed to find several funding streams to finance operations and ensure scientific development. The Institute’s essence is reflected in its current funding structure: a French research center with international influence.
The Institute has just met the 5 million euro challenge-gift set by the Simons Foundation.Funding
