Professors and invited researchers

Driven by people and not by programmes, the research undertaken at the Institute is characterised by its interdisciplinarity, which is embedded in its DNA.

The five permanent professors have been an embodiment of the Institute’s identity over the years. The 200 or so researchers invited each year ensure different research topics abound, contributing to the scientific dynamism at IHES.

Invitation programmes

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.
