The research model of the institute is founded on a basic component, the project-team, that structures the institute’s activities. These teams will participate in the promotion of research at the interfaces of the disciplines and will pursue specialized training actions in connection with these high visibility projects.
Scientists working on research projects are gathered in project-teams. Each project-team is made up of about a dozen scientists and staff, and is led by one or a pair of scientific personalities, who define the scientific objectives.
The institute has currently 3 active project-teams.
In order to unlock the potential of data and computing, the institute has launched a university-wide initiative in computing and data science to answer some of the big scientific questions and technological challenges of our times.
ISCD is also concerned with the dissemination of results, especially with open-source software. Therefore, it provides a digital repository, which is a mechanism for managing and storing digital content, thus deriving maximum value from its content.
Joint research programs combine the expertise of several laboratories and units to construct joint research in areas addressing interdisciplinary challenges while providing opportunities for young students to hone their skills.
The ISCD Seminars are generally given by researchers based in or around Université Pierre et Marie. They are primarily aimed at researchers working in the applied mathematics, computer science, HPC, and computational sciences in the institute, but cover a wide range of topics.
Consult the news page for the upcoming seminars.
A project-team is organized around a multidisciplinary team of scientists sharing a research program and objectives and is headed by a project manager (a scientific personality). Each team has a large scientific independence, benefit from resources allocated by the institute and by other initiatives. Team members are associated with partner institutions and can work part-time for the project-team.
Every project-team has been approved by the scientific committee and has four years to achieve its scientific objectives. At the end of this period, the project-team is subject to a scientific assessment; it can be stopped or renewed a maximum of 2 times.
The institute is currently hosting 3 project-teams involving more than 100 researchers.
To address the emerging challenges identified with the help of the Scientific Advisory Committee, a framework for long-term cooperation between the scientists has been established. By bridging research across the disciplines, ISCD researchers can tackle complex problems that would be impossible without institute-level support.
ISCD’s scientific initiatives are meant to evolve over the years as the institute’s research will register successes and overcome challenges. These initiatives are related to scientific priorities, often not set by the funding agencies. The institute has recommended funding a limited number of initiatives, ranked in order of priority, at the end of a rigorous selection.
The Joint Program is based on a proposal of joint research made by researchers together, who share, as well as their expertises also their research facilities, thus creating a Joint Lab. both physical and virtual, with improved characteristics when compared to the original participating single structures.
Several such joint programs are already financed by the participating institutions at Sorbonne Universités and the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research through the Programme d’Investissement d’Avenir.
