The CRM has always played a major role in the training of young researchers. One of the training tools favored by the CRM is the organization and funding of schools in the framework of its thematic programs and other scientific meetings.

In addition, the CRM is since 2011 the main partner of the Séminaire de Mathématiques Supérieures (SMS). This annual summer school in pure and applied mathematics has been held for more than 50 years on the campus of the Université de Montréal. Focusing on a current research topic, the SMS brings together high-level speakers and students from around the world.
