The CRM coordinates advanced courses and is instrumental in the training of young researchers. Throughout the world one finds numerous researchers who have had the opportunity to complete their research training at the CRM. The Centre is a major meeting place where all members benefit from a large number of scientific exchanges and collaborative projects.

The CRM's scientific activities fall into two principal categories: research projects undertaken by teams, and thematic activities organised on a national or international scale. These thematic activities are open to all disciplines and involve researchers from the Centre and from other universities. In order to assure the widest possible diffusion of the participants' research results, the CRM launched, in 1989, a publication programme.
