DIM, a field of major interest
A Domaine d’intérêt majeur (DIM) is a research network, financed by the Île-de-France region for 4 years. The allocated fund is redistributed to the members of the network, based on calls for proposals. It finances PhD grants, post-doctorate researches, workshops, equipments, etc.
The DIM label is meant to increase the scientific standing of the research institutions from Île-de-France, by supporting structuring projects and disruptive innovations in very specific fields.
In the 2017-2020 period, following a scientific expertise process, the regional scientific board decided to select 9 DIM projects. The selected projects were attributed a DIM label by the Region Council of île-de-France on 15 December 2016.
