Maison Suger: office/living quarters

Hosting Requests

Located in Paris’ historical Latin Quarter, the Maison Suger was created by the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme (literally, House of the Sciences of Man Foundation) in 1990 in order to give foreign researchers in the social and human sciences needing to spend time in Paris – for long periods in the framework of collaborations with French and foreign teams and researchers – a working and living environment adapted to their needs.  It also strives to promote exchanges between researchers from all disciplines and nationalities in order to generate fresh perspectives and new projects/programs of scientific cooperation.

Requests should be sent to the Director of the Maison Suger by e-mail, fax, or postal mail.  They must include:

  • the hosting request
  • a curriculum vitæ,
  • a detailed research program, plus letters from French and foreign scientific partners (if applicable),
  • list of publications.

Hosting decisions are made by the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme’s Scientific Board.  Decisions are taken based on the proposed research projects’ degree of compatibility with the FMSH’s lines of action. Attention is also paid to ensuring a balance between researchers’ countries of origin, participating French institutions, and disciplines.   

As stipulated in its statutes, the FMSH is a non-profit institution. For this reason, a portion of the Maison Suger’s operating costs must be covered by the residents themselves. Housing costs are calculated in the following way: the FMSH covers roughly 30% of the Maison’s operating costs, and the remaining amount is covered by the residents.
