Centers of Excellence

Though the nature of the Centers is flexible based on their geographical, institutional and historical positions, a few conditions define the Centers:

They function around:

  • a "critical mass" of high level academics and researchers associated with the center and who come from different departments permitting transatlantic projects;
  • a well-identified structure within a university which offers a clear research and /or academic agenda;
  • a stability of funding and operating conditions over time: the Cultural Services of the Embassy of France are particularly attentive to the host institution’s support of the Center of Excellence;
  • high levels of international visibility and scientific connectivity.
