Introduction, General Objectives

Since October 1, 1998, Inserm has sought to strengthen scientific relations with the United States by having a Scientific Attaché at the Embassy of France.

At the embassy, Inserm has three main objectives:

  • Assuring an institutional presence for French scientists in the United States, in particular for post-doctorates from Inserm laboratories, but also for senior researchers who would like to start or restart working in France
  • Strengthening scientific collaborations and giving them an institutional backing
  • Developing a process for the reciprocal relay of information between France and the United States
