The "ERC Week” will run from the 13 to the 19 March to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the European Research Council. Since 2007, the ERC has had a considerable impact on the European research landscape, funding almost 7,000 researchers in ten years.
The French Embassy and the FACE Foundation are launching the Thomas Jefferson Fund to support new, innovative collaborations between promising young researchers in France and the United States in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Humanities and Social Sciences (SSH) and Sciences for Society (interdisciplinary STEM-SSH projects). The Thomas Jefferson Fund will fund up to nine original, two-year collaborative projects, addressing the most pressing global challenges.
Modelling-Simulations-Optimization (MSO) initiatives aim to favour interaction between calculus expertise in French mathematical laboratories and the industrial world. French MSO initiatives are about to set up as a network in order to enhance their visibility and to better fulfil the enterprises' expectations.

In algebraic geometry, intersection theory aims at describing how algebraic manifolds intersect one another in an ambient space. Recent progress about self-intersections have been made by studying how an algebric manifold intersects its infenitesimal perturbations. These results open the way to a better understanding of derivate self-intersections.

Thirteen portraits offering an unusual insight into mathematics... The Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (Cirm) in Marseille Luminy (France) will host the exhibition "Women of Mathematics throughout Europe, a gallery of portraits" as of March 6th, 2017 for International Women Day.
The European project MathInParis, supported by the Fondation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris (FSMP), was chosen as part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND 2016 H2020 program.
A project entitled "A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical and Natural Sciences : How to Measure It, How to Reduce It ?" was approved by the International Council for Sciences (ICSU) for the years 2017-2019. The project will produce sound data to support the choices of interventions that ICSU and member unions can feasibly undertake. It will provide evidence for informed decisions, including trends and will provide easy access to materials proven to be useful in encouraging girls and young women to study and work in these fields.
"Quantum Engineering Grenoble" (QuEnG) is a three-year interdisciplinary PhD program funded by the Idex-UGA. It aims to foster high-level research at the interface between physics, mathematics, computer sciences, social sciences, humanities, or with industrial coaching.
10 PhD scholarships will be attributed on the following topics:
