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.
Each year the International Division issues a call for proposals for courses and training workshops aimed primarily at research scientists, technicians and students from the Network, as well as people from other institutions (e.g. ministries or universities), who can subsequently put their knowledge to use in other national or regional organizations.
The principal criteria for awarding funding for a particular course are the quality of the course (subjects covered and organization) and the teaching staff.
Priority is given to courses and workshops that are consistent with the main research programs of the Institut Pasteur International Network and the region hosting the course in particular, and that can be integrated with local/regional programs (universities).
Priority is given to courses held within an institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network.
Funding will not be renewed for course organizers who have not provided the financial report and the list of attendees for a course organized previously.
Funding for a particular project must be justified and consistent with the course type. Organizers are encouraged to seek additional funding. Funding from the Institut Pasteur International Network is available for up to 80% of the total budget for new courses and 40% for existing courses. The budget should include expenses related to scientific and technical personnel of the Institut Pasteur International Network. No other grant will be available. As a general rule, funding may not exceed €30,000 excl. VAT.
To be eligible, all applications must be made using the downloadable funding application form.
The downloadable form is available in French or English. Please note, however, that applications in English are strongly encouraged as a wider panel of external assessors can be used.
For conference and seminar organization requirements a budget forecast form is available for completion. We remind you that no per diem rate will be allowed for lecturers or speakers assigned to any course, conference or seminar.
