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 organise conferences aimed at a broad audience, to introduce current research projects and organise 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, and by Jean-Marc Deshouillers, professor at the University Victor Segalen Bordeaux 2. Since May 2009, the association has been chaired by Valentin Poénaru who was professor at the Paris-Sud University (Orsay) before retiring.
