Awardees by year
The Simons Foundation is pleased to announce the 2017 Targeted Grants to Institutes awardees:
The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) develops and hosts research programs and activities that support and broaden the relationship between mathematics and computation. The Simons Foundation will support the Simons Research Professorships at ICERM program, which will provide substantial stipend support for key scientists to be in residence for three months at ICERM. The foundation will also support the programming of hot topic workshops, enabling the institute to respond rapidly to exciting research developments.
Saint Petersburg Department of V.A. Steklov Institute of Mathematics of the Russian Academy of Sciences
Saint Petersburg Department of V.A. Steklov Mathematical Institute is an independent institute within the Russian Academy of Sciences. The Simons Foundation will support thematic programs, conferences and workshops each year, as well as international meetings that include scientific schools for graduate students and new postdoctoral fellows.
The Mandelstam Institute for Theoretical Physics (MITP) aims to encourage discussion and multidisciplinary collaboration between traditionally separated areas of theoretical physics and to provide an environment conducive of quality research. The Simons Foundation funds will go toward improving research competitiveness and international integration of the research activities in South Africa, through supporting month-long visits by leading researchers, joint postdoctoral fellowships and workshops and outreach activities at the MITP.
The Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM) serves as a national center for fundamental research in mathematics and their applications. The Simons Foundation will provide funding to establish the Simons CRM Scholars program, which will allow the CRM to invite junior- and senior-level researchers for extended visits.
