National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS)
France’s National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) is the largest fundamental research organisation in Europe and is Imperial’s top international institutional collaborator.
In 2018, Imperial and CNRS set up a joint laboratory in London – the UMI Abraham de Moivre –which serves as a hub for collaborations between the French and UK mathematics communities.
The UMI is CNRS’s first international joint research unit in the UK, and has already hosted dozens of French mathematicians, organised workshops, published research papers and collaborated with other fields such as physics, computer science, biology, economics and social sciences.
