THE JEAN-MORLET CHAIR
Each semester of the Jean-Morlet Chair is intended for an outstanding, innovative researcher from a non-French institution, working closely with a Local project leader based at Aix-Marseille Université. The idea is not only for individuals to collaborate at an international level, but also for this programme to help develop strong synergies between laboratories, researchers, doctoral students, both across borders and within the local mathematical sciences community at large. The chair is open to all areas of mathematics and mathematics in interaction with other disciplines.
Each Chair consists of an extended Scientific programme of events (1 conference, 1 research school, up to 2 workshops, 2 research in pairs events + any other outreach or parallel activity such as Masterclasses, work with PhD. students, talks in local laboratories or federations such as the FRUMAM etc.). The programme of events is organized alongside a programme of invitations (colleagues, special guests, post-doctoral students, PhDs etc.) that brings supplementary financial support to these events and draws international mathematicians to Luminy.
This programme was created in 2013 and is now internationally recognized. It is seen as an exciting opportunity to boost the international attractiveness of the Marseille Region and enhance current trends or develop new ideas in all fields of mathematical sciences.
