The Pasteur Museum is housed in the apartment where Louis Pasteur spent his final seven years and offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the living and working environment of the world-renowned scientist. Visitors can gain a unique insight into his everyday life alongside his wife and can admire his rich and diverse scientific work.
The Institut Pasteur’s scientific strategy focuses on developing original and innovative topics and promoting interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary cooperation and approaches. The Institut Pasteur teams have access to the technological resources needed to speed up and further improve the quality of their outstanding research.
Ever since the introduction of the world’s first "Technical Microbiology" course in 1889, teaching has been a priority for the Institut Pasteur. The Institut Pasteur has an international reputation for quality teaching that attracts students from all over the world who come to further their training or top up their degree programs.
With international courses, PhD and postdoctoral traineeship, each institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) contributes to the transmission of knowledge with the training of young researchers all around the world. In this context, doctoral and postdoctoral programmes, study and traineeship fellowships are available to scientists. Alongside training, dynamism and attractiveness of RIIP will result in the creation of 4-year group for the young researchers.
The main objective of call for proposals is to encourage the development of scientific collaborations in the field of research and action for public health. These calls concern scientists, engineers, PhD students, postdocs and researchers.
Inter-Pasteurien Concerted Actions
The main objective of ACIP support is to encourage the development of new collaborations between the institutes of the Institut Pasteur International Network, for research concerning public health.
ACIP financing is aimed to encourage the set-up of Pilot studies based on an original idea concerning a non-explored public health problem, integrate at least two new groups from the International Network in an existing international consortium, or support workshops aimed at elaborating a project proposal within the framework of an identified international call.
ACIP promote the participation of young researchers and aim at a collaboration of at least three institutes of the Institut Pasteur International Network. The participation of external partners is encouraged.
Fundação Oswaldo Cruz and Institut Pasteur Joint Program
The deadline for submitting applications is September 30, 2014.
Main objective of this program is to facilitate the start-up and development of collaborations in priority areas of translational research and public health.
The priority areas for this call are:
- Integrative biology
- Chronic diseases related to infectious diseases
The project should bring together researchers or teams from at least one of the Institut Pasteur International Network and from a team of Fundação Oswaldo Cruz. Partnership with teams from other institutions is also encouraged.
A Brazilian and Institut Pasteur coordinators should be specified when submitting the application form. The coordinators will be responsible for supervision and execution of the project both scientifically and administratively. In case of clinical study, a previous approved of Ethical Local Committee will be required
The duration of funding is one year renewable for one more year after analysis of the yearly report. The research projects will receive a joint financing which can go up to 40 Keuros a year.
Project selection will be carried out by the Scientific Committee of the Fiocruz - Institut Pasteur Program. Identical project proposals should be applied by both French and Brazilian coordinators.
