The Maison Suger was designed first and foremost as a place for working and scientific exchange. The fact that the Maison houses researchers in all disciplines in the social and human sciences and from all countries makes it a privileged location for exchanges in a pluri/interdisciplinary perspective. In this sense, the Maison Suger acts as an incubator for international research projects.
As such, the Maison Suger plays a special role within the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme in that it promotes new initiatives and scientific projects.
The Maison Suger helps coordinate and supports scientific activities proposed by the researchers it houses. These activities are often carried out in cooperation with the necessary scientific laboratories, as well as the Foundation’s Parisian networks. In addition to purely research seminars, the Maison also offers: seminars, workshops, colloquiums, summer schools, etc. These types of meetings play a large role in the social and scientific life at the Maison Suger, and promote exchanges between resident researchers and members of the French scientific community, who partake in or are invited to organized activities.
