The CARMIN Excellent Laboratory [Centres d'Accueil et de Rencontres Mathématiques INternationales] the coordinator of which Cédric Villani is, was retained by the government after selection by an international jury within the framework of the Investments of Future (Grand Emprunt).
Worn by PRES Sorbonne Université, this project federates four French institutes of mathematics with national and international vocation: Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHÉS), Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM), Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées (CIMPA).
With additional ways of functioning, these four institutes participate all in the functioning of the community of mathematical research, by favoring the birth of new ideas and collaborations via invitations and researchers' meetings.
