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.
