1 International Research Laboratory
International Research Laboratories are the more mature level of organization for international cooperation. They are genuine joint laboratories located within partner universities, and they bring together researchers, PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, engineers, and technicians from both the CNRS and the partner institutions for 5-years mandates. Those initial mandates are often extended so their global duration can reach 15 years or even more.
The signing institutions of the IRL FMVA are CNRS, Université Paul Sabatier Toulouse III, Institut National des Sciences Appliquées, Université d’Orléans & Université de Tours, Université Paris 13, Université Paris 8, the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST), the Vietnam Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (VIASM).
The IRL FMVA is currently directed by Pr Marc Peigné (Université de Tours). It is one of the 75 IRL developed by the CNRS with strategic partners across the world and the only IRL in Vietnam.
