Professor at the University of Aix-Marseille, Julien ROYET has been appointed senior member of the Institut Universitaire de France, a network of excellence in research across the French Universities.

The IUF is a selective structure, with no more than 935 current or former members, which represents about two per cent of the number of Professors working in the French Universities. The teacher-researchers appointed to the IUF are placed for a period of 5 years in a position of delegation, so they continue to carry out their activity in their home institution by being relieved of 2/3 of their teaching service. The goal of IUF is to encourage French Universities to strive for excellence and to improve the material conditions of the Professors’ scientific research.
