The MIT France Fund was set up in 2002 through the impetus of the French Ministry of foreign affairs. The Institut Curie continues to take part in this programme, which promotes programmes for university study abroad and scientific collaborations between France and MIT.

We host about 10 students from MIT every year, and in 2010 we participated in the MIT Fair to promote this exchange.


The Leonardo Da Vinci Foundation

Thanks to the Leonardo Da Vinci Foundation, the Institut Curie has hosted some of the best Italian students over the past five years, by way of the Unipharma-Graduates Project programme.
These students carry out their 6-month internships in the fields of biomedical sciences, chemistry, pharmacy and biotechnologies in several research units at the Institut Curie.
