The Forschungsinstitut für Mathematik (FIM) is a research institute that was founded in 1964 by Beno Eckmann with the objective to promote and facilitate the exchange and cooperation between ETH Zürich and the international mathematical community.

Currently, the FIM welcomes and hosts about 200 guests from all over the world per year, ranging from short term visits to long term stays. Furthermore, the FIM organizes scientific activities such as conferences, minicourses and advanced graduate courses.

Starting from September 1st, 2019, I am the director of the FIM. I am happy to take on this new challenge, to continue the excellent work of FIM, and to welcome leading mathematicians from around the world to ETH Zürich.
