Les Amis de l’IHES
Les Amis de l’IHES helps to promote the cutting edge research carried out at IHES as widely as possible. They organize conferences aimed at a broad audience, to introduce current research projects and organize cultural events of a scientific nature.
Les Amis de l’IHES is an association which was created on 8 October 1998 to coincide with the Institute’s 40th anniversary celebrations. Louis Michel was Chairman until he passed away on 30 December 1999; he was succeeded by Marcel Berger, former IHES Director, by Jean-Marc Deshouillers, professor at the University Victor Segalen Bordeaux 2 and by Valentin Poénaru, former professor at the Paris-Sud University (Orsay) from 2009 until 2022. Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, former IHES Director, was appointed President on 31 May 2022.
