Harassment – Antenne H

The Institute has created an anti-harassment programme, named “Antenne H”. It was established for students as well as collaborators and is intended to improve the work and study climate at the Institute and to help ensure the wellbeing of our community.

The programme is managed by a committee of representatives guided by the Deputy-Director of the Institute and the Director of Human Resources. It falls within the scope of the Institute’s Charter, which calls for Institute community members to behave in a respectful and exemplary manner in support of our quest for excellence at the Institute and in society at large.
