Foundations and associations are valuable partners for Inserm. They contribute to the financing and organization of research and play a decisive role in the democracy of healthcare and science.

Foundations and associations develop strategies in support of research based on calls for proposals and the granting of awards to recognize excellence in scientific research. Our laboratories apply for these grants and respond to these tenders.

Some of Inserm's programs, such as the Atip-Avenir program, are established in close collaboration with associations and foundations.
