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.
Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND consists in the co-funding PhDs and postdocs up to a total amount of serveral million euros for 3 to 5 years. It aims to encourage cross-border mobility. Within this framework, the 'MathInParis' project will allow 40 PhDs, led by students from all over the world, to take place in Paris. Two thirds of the PhD will be funded by the European program and the last third, by the research institutions hosting the students.
