Science incubator residencies

ISC-PIF offers long terms residencies (one to four years for few scholars) for funded projects contributing to hosting fees, as well as free medium term (one or two years) and short term residencies  (between one week and <6 months) for exploratory projects for individual researchers and research groups affiliated to one of our partner institutions and willing to benefit from the stimulating environment of the institute.


Residents have access to all of our services, they benefit from our engineers assistance and they are fully integrated to the life of the institute.

Seminars, internal events, and our famous weekly “ISCoffee Breaks” are some of the many occasions they get to interact with researchers working in different field, from computing to physics through history, mathematics, economy…

Who can apply

  • Individual researchers affiliated to a lab hosted by one of our partner institutions.
  • Research groups affiliated to a lab hosted by one of our partner institutions.
  • Scholars who are not affiliated to one of our partner institutions with projects linked to complex systems may also apply for a residency.
  • Researchers from partner institution may propose residencies for international visitors/research engineers, post-docs, students.

Application process

If you have an account on the ISC-PIF website, we recommend you log-in first before filling this form.

To be selected, the research projects must explore the themes, “main questions” and “main objects” defined by the complex system research community in the French roadmap for complex systems.

Your application will be submitted to the next ISC-PIF steering committee and you will receive an email notification regarding the outcome. If you do not receive any feedback 7 days after your online submission, please get in touch with contact at iscpif dot fr.
