The "Foundation for Mathematical Sciences of Paris" is a Thematic network for advanced research (Réseau Thématique de Recherches Avancées, RTRA) co-founded and co-financed by the CNRS and supports the work of 1,000 mathematicians working in 9 different UMR of the CNRS.

The "Foundation for Mathematical Sciences of Paris", created in December 2006, offers a scientific scope that covers most of the cutting edge topics in mathematics and fundamental computer science, from the most abstract theories to the most diverse applications.

The foundation has three essential missions : to support fundamental and applied research, develop collaborations with leading global scientific institutions and develop public-private research partnerships.

The foundation is a RTRA co-founded and co-financed by the CNRS and supports the work of a thousand mathematicians working in 9 different UMR of the CNRS, providing an annual budget of nearly € 2 million to these units through excellency programs unique in France. Members of these CNRS units are very involved in the life and development of the Foundation.

Thematic networks for advanced research (RTRA) are structures created by the federal program for research n° 2006-450 of April 18, 2006 (NOR : MENX0500251L). They operate under the status of the Foundation for Scientific Cooperation (like the PRES) after signing an agreement. They consist of several Research or Higher Education Institutions, public as well as private, and sometimes private companies working together in one or more research areas. Recognized as being in the public interest, the status of scientific cooperation foundation allows RTRA to seek private sponsors.
