Participants get a chance to benefit from the special close environment of CIRM to get to know each other well before moving on to Paris where they are housed in various places in the city. This special collaboration with Institut Henri Poincaré is one of the many initiatives set up to reinforce close cooperation links between the infrastructures devoted to mathematics in France.

Applications are first considered by IHP then evaluated by CIRM’s Scientific Committee.

Additional external funding should be found to cover additional participants, who can also support themselves. The cost of a week at CIRM is around 540 euros per participant.
