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.
These Grants, funded by Institut Pasteur International Division, are designed to promote and facilitate participation of the scientists in the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) in courses provided at Institut Pasteur in Paris, training workshops organised by RIIP member institutes, and other courses recognised by the International Division.
Courses may cover subjects such as developmental biology, pathophysiology of infectious diseases, immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, food hygiene and safety, and quality control policy. Courses should build on the applicant’s initial training and contribute to strengthening his/her research skills.
The scientific staff from RIIP must submit an application by registering online courses at the Institut Pasteur in Paris for the current academic year on the website (see "Online Registration") and simultaneously sending a request for funding to the International Division
The Selection Committee selects candidates for being involved in
The Selection Committee decides study grant award based on the relevance of the course for the training of the candidate, its relevance to the applicant's position in the institute and its relevance to the Institute. Only the candidates rated A by the Committee of Courses will be reviewed for the study grant selection. In addition candidates have already received a study grant to attend a course last year, will not apply for a study grant the following year. Priority will be given to candidates who have never received funding: traineeship grant or study grants.
If the study grant is accepted, the Institut Pasteur takes care of the living and registration expenses, as members of the International Network are not exempted from fees (€400 - 2000). On the other hand, the Institut Pasteur does not pay for transport costs which stay chargeable to the candidate’s institute of origin.
