It funds, upon selection through an annual call for proposals, mobility costs of research projects involving at least 3 research units of France and Asia.

The programmes support projects involving France and the member countries of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN : Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam), as well as East Timor, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie

CNRS is also a member of AUF, a key player in the field of French-speaking academic cooperation.

The Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) is an international association comprising universities, grandes écoles, academic networks and scientific research centers that use the French language all over the world. With a network of 804 members in 102 countries, it is one of the world’s largest higher education and research associations.
The AUF is also the specialist higher education and research agency for the Francophonie. As such, within its scope of competence, it implements resolutions adopted at conferences of heads of state and government of countries where French is spoken (Sommets de la Francophonie).
