The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) met on 4 February to examine the 31 proposals submitted by Sciences Po’s academic community.
Each proposal was appraised by at least two members of the SAB who gave on oral report to the Board. Based on these reports and a collective discussion, the applications were then ranked in order of priority. At the end of the process, 14 proposals were upheld. They will receive internal funding for two or even three years.
They will then be able to seek external funding to ensure their continuity. In this way, two projects selected in 2009 have obtained major external funding : the project for the creation of a qualitative investigations bank (bank d’enquêtes qualitatives) receives funding from the National Research Agency, while the Data, Infrastucture and Methods Seminar (séminaire Données, Infrastructures, Méthodes) has facilitated the formation of a team that is now part of the Equipex DIME-SHS funded by the National Research Agency.
The members of the SAB unanimously agreed on the importance and quality of all projects submitted this year. Since the process was launched, 41 proposals have received support from the SAB.

The upcoming cantonal elections on 20 and 27 March will be the last nation-wide elections before the 2012 presidential election.
Despite the local flavour of these elections, they will give an insight into the way the electorate is leaning in the year leading up to the presidential moment of reckoning.
CEVIPOF has created a new website, “2011: the cantonal elections” for the most up-to-date information and specialist analysis. The electoral system, territorial reform, the key issues and cantons involved are all described in detail, while maps of the political landscape in each department and results tables for the 2004 and 2008 cantonal elections illustrate evolutions and will put the election results into perspective. A detailed bibliography is also provided to shed further light on this very significant cantonal election, which may be – if territorial reform is carried out – the last ever in France’s history.

The global financial crisis has triggered intense public debate about the future of private equity, and legislation and regulation of the industry is constantly evolving in the US and Europe.
From 3-4 March Sciences Po hosted Paris’s first ever Private Equity Forum to promote greater understanding and clarification of the complex issues surrounding private equity. Over two days academics, students and interested professionals had the opportunity to attend a wonderful array of stimulating debates, a roundtable and presentations of the latest research on private equity.
The speakers included a range of prestigious international professionals, journalists and academics, such as French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde; Josh Lerner, Harvard Business School’s Jacob H. Schiff Professor of Investment Banking; Professor Eli Talmor, founder of London Business School’s Coller Insitute of Private Equity; Dominique Senequier, CEO of AXA Private Equity; Henry Kravis, Co-Founder, Co-Chairman and Co-CEO of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co, New York; Oliver Gottschalg of HEC School of Management, Paris; and journalist and author Josh Kosman.
For all of us who love Paris : Mark Dekeister exhibits his work on the ground floor of the library at 27 rue Saint Guillaume from the 8th of March.
The subject of this exhibition is the city of Paris as seen by this artist who works on superb and original polaroid photographs !
Between 1945 and 2005, Sciences Po library compiled over 18 000 clipping files on French and international news.
The oldest of these files (up to the late 1970s) are currently being digitised. Over 3000 can now be consulted online from Sciences Po’s 7 campuses: http://dossierspresse.sciences-po.fr/consult/.
This is a rare and precious treasure, as the clippings cover an extremely rich period of history: the Algerian war, the Suez crisis, the construction of the Berlin wall and thousands of other subjects covered by the press at the time can now be located via a user-friendly interface.
