Cocktail in honour of Dr Raymond Sackler and his wife Beverly

On 30 May 2013, Friends of IHES organised a cocktail in Greenwich, in Mary and Luc Hardy’s house, in honour of Dr Raymond Sackler and his wife Beverly, to thank them for their loyal financial support.­­

­With the concept of “space” chosen to frame the evening, this event brought together around forty guests who watched a film recording several scientists’ and artists’ conception of space and listened to the reading of a beautiful text on the topic, written by Elie Wiesel. Emmanuel Ullmo spoke of the future projects IHÉS will engage in with relation to Israel. Michael Douglas concluded the talks by presenting the work of Friends of IHES.
