International partnerships

Published on 12 April 2018

​The complexity of scientific and technical issues and the importance of implementing budgets has lead the Fundamental research division (DRF) to develop European and international partnerships. Along these lines, 70% of the DRF scientific publications are co-producted with international partners. 

In addition, as part of its strategic international development the DRF:

  • deploys a forward-looking approach to cooperation 
  • relies on research funding tools, especially European (e.g. framework programs of the European Commission) 
  • implements its own programs to provide incentives for collaborations and mobility of its researchers 
  • participates in the coordination of French positions via the alliances (Aviesan, Allenvi, Ancre, Allistene…), in order to improve the visibility and attractiveness of French research at the European and international levels 
  • is involved in European and international initiatives and organizations to defend its strategic directions
