International Cooperation: New Tools Available at Inserm

professional information

Inserm has implemented new tools for international cooperation. These enable each laboratory to find the funding most suited to its needs, according to the progress made in building a partnership with a foreign entity. Two calls for proposals are currently open for projects in the exploration and consolidation phases.

Inserm funds international collaborations through a range of initiatives adapted to the stage of partnership between its teams and their foreign counterparts. These are structured as follows:

  • Exploration: First steps / Projet Tremplin
  • Seed funding: International Research Projects (IRPs)
  • Structuring: Key International Partnerships (KIPs)
  • Integration: Thematic Coordination Program (TCP)

An initial call for proposals has recently been launched for the first two initiatives:

Through the First steps / Projet Tremplin, young Inserm teams are allocated €10,000 over one year to explore avenues of collaboration with a foreign team.

The International Research Projects (IRP) initiative offers emerging or existing partnerships financial support of up to €75,000 over five years.

Application deadline for the aforementioned calls for proposals: September 7, 2020 at 05:00 p.m. (Paris time)
