"Associate teams" programme

Make the most of international collaborations

Equipes Associées Chapo

Since 2002, Inria supports "Associate Teams" to strengthen scientific collaboration between Inria project teams and top-level research teams worldwide.

Associate Teams are an important tool for the international impact of Inria's scientific policy. The programme aims at boosting the Institute's scientific potential by fostering collaborations between Inria project teams and top-level research teams across the world.

Associate Teams support the strategy of the research teams in connection with the strategic partnerships (e.g. IIL) whose projects are most often formalised by Associated Teams.
The program aims to consolidate the scientific potential of teams by developing collaborations between Inria research teams and research teams from around the world.
It funds the exchange of researchers to conduct a joint research program.

This national program provides visibility and can provide access to other funding in some countries or regions

In order to support such collaborations, Inria launches an annual call for proposals in which the priorities of the institute's international strategy are set out.

This programme aims at fostering fruitful collaborations between researchers on the global stage.

An Associate Team is created for a period of three years and its activities are monitored annually. A short progress report is requested each year, in which the evolution on the work program is specified.

Inria awards a grant:

  • up to 13.000 euros/ year for the first two years of the project, for Associate Teams with non European countries; up to 9 000 euros/ year for Associate Teams with European partners.
  • up to 10.000 euros/year for the third year for Associate Teams with non European countries;
  •  up to 7 000 euros/ year for Associate Teams with European partners.
