Opening of a childcare center at Ormaille

The Institute is pleased to announce the opening of a childcare center, with the support of Ardian, within the Ormaille residence, a residence where can stay researchers during their visit at IHES.

One of the Institute’s key missions is to create an environment conducive to research, offering scientists all the freedom they need to devote themselves fully to their work, without administrative or teaching constraints. A dedicated team assists them with administrative formalities prior to their arrival, and once on site, not only do they have access to an exceptional workspace, they are also provided with an accommodation to suit their needs, including the possibility to host their families.

In an ongoing effort to improve these conditions, the Institute is strengthening its offer to adapt it ever more closely to the needs of its researchers. This new facility provides a childcare solution for children aged 2 months to 6 years old, making it easier for scientists and their families to consider a visit at the Institute.

At the same time, the Institute continues to renovate its infrastructures, and it now offers overdue barrier-free accessible facilities to people with mobility impairments on all its Bois-Marie campus. On top of this, following major renovation work, all the accommodations at the Ormaille residence now meet the highest standards in terms of energy efficiency and equipment.

If IHES is able to welcome scientists in these excellent conditions, it is thanks to the generosity of its donors from all over the world. That is why, this year, IHES has chosen to take part in #GivingTuesday, the worldwide movement promoting generosity, by unveiling the video below presenting the renovated Ormaille residence. You too can celebrate this #GivingTuesday by making a donation to IHES!
