L'X hosts Chinese students in summer
École Polytechnique received a group of 27 Chinese high school students, winners of a Franco-Chinese mathematics competition. At the same time, France Excellence 2017 Summer School "Mathematical and computational methods for life sciences" hosting Chinese students took place on the campus of l'X.
École Polytechnique received a group of 27 Chinese high school students, winners of a Franco-Chinese mathematics competition coordinated by the French Embassy in China and the Chinese Ministry of Higher Education. These 27 students, winners of "Counting with the Other" competition, were selected through a national competition. During their stay, they discovered France, in particular the ecosystem of Paris-Saclay and the Paris region.
Organized for the first time in 2014 as part of the celebrations of the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between France and China, this second Franco-Chinese mathematics competition was a great success. This operation, carried out jointly by the Chinese Ministry of Education and the French Ministry of Education, is part of the high-level dialogue on human exchanges between the two countries whose last session was held in Paris on June, 30th, 2016.
École Polytechnique was pleased to be a partner of the program and to host young future mathematicians from July 17th to July 22th. Rewarded students had a great opportunity to discover l'X on July 17th during a welcome day organized by École Polytechnique.
Almost at the same time, from July 10th to July 29th, Summer School France Excellence 2017 "Mathematical and computational methods for life sciences" hosting Chinese students took place on the campus of École Polytechnique.
This program was aslo organized in collaboration with the Embassy of France in China within the framework of the Summer School France Excellence 2017. It was carried by a researcher of the CMAP laboratory, Rebecca Jing, in collaboration with INRIA. The summer school allowed its participants to discover varied mathematical methods, while the carried out projects facilitated the initiation to an interdisciplinary research, where the modeling, the numerical simulations and the statistics advance life sciences.
L'X was pleased to welcome fifteen Chinese Master-level students selected in China in the framework of this summer school. These students had the opportunity to discover laboratories and research projects at l'X and INRIA, and then would perhaps pursue PhD studies at École Polytechnique's laboratories.
Both programs received funding from the French Embassy in China.
