Le CNRS et the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) launch two calls aiming at promoting cooperations and scientific events between French and Japanese laboratories, in all scientific domains.
- the first one encourages researchers mobility: within a 2-year research project.
- the second one, named « CNRS-JSPS joint seminars », enables French and Japanese researchers to organise a scientific event of up to 8 days, either in France, or in Japan.
Application deadline: September 4th 2018
The Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées (CIMPA), founded in France in 1978, is a nonprofit organisation working for the development of mathematics research in developing countries. CIMPA Research Schools is the historical activity of CIMPA, it focuses on areas where there is a real drive to develop mathematics and where there is a scope for a research project.
Breakthrough Prize sponsors an annual global competition for high school science and math students to inspire creative thinking about fundamental concepts in the natural sciences and mathematics.
Each student submits a video that explains a challenging and important concept or theory in mathematics, life sciences, or physics. The winner receives a $250,000 college scholarship. The winning student's teacher and school also benefit: $50,000 for the teacher and a state-of-the-art $100,000 science lab for the school.
The foundation stone laying ceremony of the new building of the Centre international de rencontres mathématiques (Cirm) in Luminy-Marseille was held on May 17th, 2018. The expansion and renovation works will enable the CIRM to welcome & accomodate 70 more researchers from all around the world - i.e.
Congratualtions to Viviane Baladi, senior researcher at the CNRS and a member of the Institut de mathématiques de Jussieu-Paris Rive Gauche (a CNRS, Université Paris Diderot & Sorbonne Université maths lab), laureate to a 2017 ERC Advanced Grant 2017 for her project SOS, Smooth dynamics via Operators, with Singularities!
