CNRS representative offices worldwide

Thanks to its international roots, the CNRS is involved in a large number of major discoveries alongside its foreign partners. It takes part in the world’s scientific and technological challenges, as part of a globalised research effort based on the free movement of scientists and ideas.
The CNRS organises its international cooperation into 4 geographical poles: Europe, the Americas, Asia-Oceania and Africa-Middle East-India, and runs a network of offices located in key areas of world science: the Brussels branch, and offices in Beijing, Tokyo, Singapore, Melbourne, New Delhi, Pretoria, Washington, Rio de Janeiro and Ottawa.
These representative offices are strategic locations for promoting scientific excellence. They provide support for expatriate researchers and researchers on mission, monitor cooperation agreements and information, and they facilitate relations with foreign partners, in liaison with the embassies’ scientific and cultural services.
