The Activity Report for the Pasteur Microbes and Health Carnot Institute has now been published. It looks back at the main activities carried out in 2018, in synergy with the Institut Pasteur's Research Applications and Industrial Relations Department (DARRI). These activities are in line with the Institut Pasteur's 2019-2023 Strategic Plan.
The Pasteur Microbes and Health (Pasteur MS) Carnot Institute* is composed of the six Institut Pasteur departments that deal primarily with infectious diseases (Cell Biology and Infection, Global Health, Microbiology, Parasites and Insect Vectors, Virology and Mycology). Units dealing with immunology and neuroscience are also associated with the institute. The aim is to develop scientific and technological innovations in fields related to infectious and chronic diseases, antimicrobial resistance and the role of the microbiota in health.
The Activity Report outlines the main activities carried out by the Pasteur MS Carnot Institute in 2018, in synergy with the Research Applications and Industrial Relations Department (DARRI):
- the provision of funding for long-term projects with potential for applications;
- support for maturation programs;
- measures to develop entrepreneurship awareness.
These activities are firmly in line with the Institut Pasteur 2019-2023 Strategic Plan in the area of technology transfer, with the aim of developing research applications and boosting partnerships with industry. At the Institut Pasteur, DARRI is responsible for developing research and technology transfer applications.
*Carnot Institutes are public research bodies recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation for their commitment to developing research and development that drives industrial innovation.
