Challenges and objectives

One of the priorities of the MILYON LabEx is to boost research in mathematics and theoretical computer science.

MILYON has a program designed to explore emerging research, strengthen international collaboration and promote research at the interfaces of mathematics and computer science. MILYON plays an essential role in the development of scientific multidisciplinary research.


Areas of Research

  • Complexity and algorithmics in mathematics and computer science,
  • The challenges of the multidisciplinary field of scientific computing
  • The challenges of the modeling of information technology
  • Mathematics in biology and medicine.


The Research Program

MILYON with its three joint research units contributes to making Lyon achieve world-class excellence in research.

To accomplish its objectives, MILYON organizes, jointly or alone, major scientific events in Lyon. Some thematic events lastone month, 3 months or a whole semester. These events bring together not only leading experts, but also hundreds of researchers at all stages of their careers. MILYON provides them with an ideal work environment. In a stimulating environment, all resources are productively used to develop new knowledge at the leading edge of current research. Particular attention is paid to knowledge that is transferable and likely to be valorized.

Along with an ambitious research program, MILYON organizes additional activities, such as invitations of top-level international researchers and the funding of postdocs.

The high number of MILYON-marked publications reflects the strength of the research programs.
