Founded in 1875, the École française de Rome is a French public research institution (établissement public à caractère scientifique, culturel et professionnel) operating under the supervision of the French Ministry of Higher Education,  and Research.

Mission

The École française de Rome supports research and training in archaeology, history and other fields of the humanities and social sciences covering all periods from prehistory to the present day. Its geographical areas of focus include Rome and the rest of Italy, the Maghreb and the countries of southeastern Europe that border the Adriatic.

The École promotes international research exchanges through its participation in multinational archaeological excavations and through its sponsorship of academic conferences. It also publishes each year about twenty monograph volumes in its areas of specialisation as well as a biannual academic journal, Mélanges de l’École française de Rome.

The École makes its print and digital resources, in particular a specialised research library of more than 200,000 volumes housed on the upper floors of the Palazzo Farnese, available to researchers from all countries. It welcomes doctoral students (boursiers), young post-doctoral researchers (membres), university faculty and other academic professionals, including researchers on leave of absence from the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) as well as participants in academic partnership programmes.
