Regarding the CNRS, IHP depends on the National Institute of Mathematical Sciences and their Interactions (INSMI) and on the Institute of Physics(INP). Its spectrum falls under sections 02 (Physical theories: methods, models and applications) and 41 (Mathematics and interactions of mathematics) of the National Committee for Scientific Research.


The Institut Henri Poincaré works with public and private partners.


The CARMIN Laboratory of Excellence [Centres d'Accueil et de Rencontres Mathématiques Internationales] is part of the future investment programme. In addition to IHP, it brings together CIMPA, CIRM and IHES, whose web links are given below. The coordinating institution is Sorbonne Université, and IHP is in charge of the project, with Sylvie Benzoni as scientific and technical manager.
