Welcome to the IHP Community Platform for Inverse Problems

What it’s all about, and what you can do with this Polaris research platform

By Abby Tabor | Science Journalist at MyScienceWork

Welcome to the platform for the community of the IHP Quarter on Inverse Problems! The objective of this project from the Institut Henri Poincaré, in collaboration with MyScienceWork, is to help the participants of the quarter on inverse problems maintain the momentum created during this productive period working face-to-face. When that time ends, there’s no reason for the productivity to slow: this platform will continue to serve as a home for all participants of the thematic quarter and a hub for their future exchanges and collaborations. Read on to learn more.

 

The objective of this project from the Institut Henri Poincaré, in collaboration with MyScienceWork, is to help the participants of the quarter on inverse problems maintain the momentum created during this productive period working face-to-face.

The IHP, embracing its role as a leader in forging collaborations across disciplines, offers researchers a physical space and time in which to come together in a focused way. When that time ends, there’s no reason for the productivity to slow: this platform will continue to serve as a home for all participants of the thematic quarter and a hub for their future exchanges and collaborations.

The IHP Profiles

Here, you’ll find profiles for all participants of the IHP Inverse Problems session, showing their areas of expertise and lists of publications and other work: scientific articles and pre-prints, but also presentations, lecture notes and more.

Users can upload documents to the platform, where the  community can annotate them online, asking questions and offering ideas and suggestions via this novel collaborative tool.

Dashboards and Metrics

Each member has their own dashboard, too, with metrics about the visibility and impact of all their publications. The individual stats let researchers see who has visited their profile, who’s downloading their publications, and what they are working on. Because, clearly, these are people worth talking to!

The Institut Henri Poincaré itself can get a clearer overview of its extended community and the impact it is having, through collaborations catalyzed by the thematic quarter

Science News

Stay in touch with the IHP–Inverse Problems community by connecting with its members. Follow the platform to receive updates when they publish news and popular science stories about their work.

Some scientists enjoy popularizing their own research; others turn to MyScienceWork’s journalists. Either way, it is shared with an extensive international community of researchers and science fans via MyScienceWork.com and other social media. As Cédric Villani, head of the Institut Henri Poincaré, says, the benefits of this range from the personal to the societal and definitely include the financial, when it comes to the recognition necessary for obtaining research funding.

Getting Your Work Noticed

What it all boils down to is visibility—within your immediate research community, in related disciplines, and in society—and this platform includes new digital tools to assist with those needs common to all research environments.
