Driven by people and not by programmes, the research undertaken at the Institute is characterised by its interdisciplinarity, which is embedded in its DNA.
While the six permanent professors constitute the core identity of IHES, the 200 or so visitors welcomed each year allow for a large diversity of topics and thus contribute to the scientific vitality of the Institute.
Researchers come from all over the world to take part in the general IHES programme or in specific programmes. They are selected following an application or invited by the Scientific Council.Find out more
