Press release – 8 July 2022
Qube Research and Technologies (QRT) becomes a major donor of IHES by making a €100k gift to the Institute’s endowment. The gift will contribute to supporting the IHES summer schools, which are an essential moment in the Institute’s scientific activity, and a unique opportunity for exchange and collaboration.
Organized around a different theme each year, these summer schools, that usually take place over two weeks, are aimed mainly towards early-stage researchers. They gather a number of PhD students and post-doctoral researchers, as well as more experienced scientists eager to pass their knowledge on to the future generations of mathematicians and theoretical physicists. Since 2020, the IHES summer schools have taken on a hybrid format, which allows for a much larger audience, who can access high-level courses from across the globe.
A global quantitative and systematic investment manager operating across the world, QRT strongly relies on advanced research and technology to implement a scientific approach to investing. By supporting the Institute’s summer schools, QRT carries forward its commitment to supporting academic research at its highest level. Through this gift, QRT also reinforces its support in favor of Université Paris-Saclay, IHES being one of its founding members.
Emmanuel Ullmo, Director of IHES, comments: “Through this generous gift, QRT directly joins the Institute’s major donors and it helps IHES organize its annual summer school, thus participating in the advancement and dissemination of knowledge. IHES is very grateful for this precious support.”
Pierre-Yves Morlat, CEO of Qube Research and Technologies, said “IHES is a recognized symbol of scientific excellence. As a science-driven company we benefit immensely from Paris-Saclay’s scientific ecosystem. QRT is proud to support IHES’s efforts in promoting scientific creativity and global knowledge dissemination”.
