Declared public utility, the Foundation Maison des sciences de l'homme is the first French foundation dedicated to humanities and social sciences.
For more than 60 years, the Foundation has remained faithful to its original mission: promote the free circulation of knowledge, nurture interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue, and develop the necessary tools to access and disseminate knowledge.
Through the programs and services it develops for the benefit of the scientific community, the FMSH works to advance knowledge in humanities and social sciences to better understand the complexity of the world and explore the common challenges facing our societies.
Throughout the year, a series of events and meetings will highlight 60 years of action in favor of research in humanities and social sciences.
Organized in partnership with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, this series of four conferences seeks to make visible the complexity of the trajectories of intellectuals in exile and their importance both for the renewal of thought and for democracy.
The book written by Marcel Fournier presents the history of the FMSH, from its beginnings to the present day, and its contribution to a better understanding - multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary - of a world that has become multi-polar and global.

A workshop to provide a more complex vision of the institution and its research policies over the last sixty years, and to explore the competitive space of Parisian and French academic institutions over this period.
