Inria’s Associate Teams

An Associate Team is a joint research project created between an Inria project-team and a research team from abroad. The two partners jointly define a scientific objective with a clear added value for each of them, a research plan and a program for bilateral exchanges.

The regional or thematic priorities of the call reflect the institute’s international strategy to anchor its presence in the world and develop strong partnerships with several countries.

The Associate Team budget is dedicated to support:

  • exchanges between France and the partner country for researchers, engineers, postdoctoral fellows, PhD students and interns.
  • the organization of joint workshops/working meetings.
