Scientific cooperation programmes

Boosting the creation of international research teams and developing multilateral partnership

FMSH develops bilateral and multilateral scientific cooperation programmes with various partners - foundations, foreign universities and academies - to support the creation of international research teams working on common projects. Those international cooperations enable the FMSH to fully be part of numerous research network initiatives.
