Qube Research and Technologies renews its support to IHES

Press release – 5 July 2023

Qube Research and Technologies (QRT) renews its support to the summer schools organized at the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques with a donation of €150k to the Institute’s endowment fund.

QRT became a major donor to IHES in 2022, through an initial donation that contributed to the Institute’s endowment fund, to support the IHES Summer Schools. This year, QRT renewed and strengthened its support to IHES, and more particularly to its summer schools.

The IHES Summer Schools are important annual events dedicated to a different topic each year. They bring together scientists from all over the world, who come to the Institute to attend advanced courses given by experienced researchers.

By choosing to support these regular events that contribute to training scientists at the early stages of their careers, QRT continues its commitment to supporting fundamental research at the highest level, specifically in favor of young researchers. Through this donation, QRT is also strengthening its support to Université Paris-Saclay, of which IHES is a founding member.

A signing ceremony of the gift agreement between QRT and IHES took place on Tuesday July 4 at QRT’s London offices, where Thibault Damour, theoretical physicist and Professor Emeritus at IHES, gave a lecture on gravitational waves and black holes.

Emmanuel Ullmo, Director of the IHES, says: “I am delighted that QRT has chosen to renew its support for the IHES Summer Schools by making a new gift to the Institute’s endowment fund. It is very important for IHES to be able to count on the support of corporate sponsors that share our values of freedom and independence in research. The Institute is very grateful for QRT’s commitment to the younger generations of scientists.”

Pierre-Yves Morlat, CEO of Qube Research and Technologies, comments: “We are proud to support IHES and specifically its initiatives targeted at younger generations. QRT applies a scientific approach to investments and benefits from advances in fundamental sciences. We are delighted to contribute to the training of new talents in these fields through our support to the IHES Summer Schools.”
