The new class of PhD students and post-doctoral fellows have joined the IAP in september and october 2016.

During the welcome meeting that was held on November 15th, the IAP directors presented the activities of the lab and the organization of research in France. The diversity of the subjects that will be researched by these young scientists is large. Representative of this fact, their work at the IAP is funded by many sources: ministerial scholarships, European fellowships, Labex ILP, CNES, international collaborative programmes, private funding. The entire staff of the IAP wishes them a fruitful stay, and many rich scientific exchanges.
