CNRS Informatics internationally

Thanks to the cooperation tools set up by the CNRS, CNRS Informatics's researchers work in collaboration with information science laboratories on all continents.

Through its offices and its international research labs (IRL), the CNRS is one of the few research organizations in the world to have permanent representations and permanent research structures abroad. To support its international policy, CNRS Informatics has several collaborative tools at its disposal. The Institute is thus involved in:

  • 6 International Research Labs (IRL) - Australia, Canada, India, Israel, Japan, Singapore
  • 10 International Research Programs (IRP) - Australia, Argentina, Cameroon, Canada, United States, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco
  • 2 International Research Networks (IRN) - Germany, Italy

Like the other CNRS institutes, CNRS Informatics benefits from support from the European Research and International Cooperation Department (Derci) for its international development.

Encouraging scientists' mobility

In parallel with these structures, CNRS Informatics encourages researchers and academics in its laboratories to spend medium- to long-term periods abroad. Each year, about ten members of the Institute are assigned to the international joint units for a period of six months to two years

Intensifying partnerships with emerging countries

CNRS Informatics participates in the development of research and the training of young PhD students in countries with high levels of economic growth such as India, Mexico and Singapore.

CNRS Informatics is also present in developing countries with the associated international laboratory Datanet for big data research in Morocco and the Web Sciences international research network in Brazil. Numerous international scientific cooperation projects and joint research projects also promote exchanges between universities and foreign laboratories.
