The regional centers organize the actions of the Institut des Amériques in France.
These centers have the mission of putting in touch the actors of transamerican research distributed in the various federated universities.
Each university is represented within the IdA by a representative.
As each center has an yearly budget, it finances inter-university activities and scientific events about the Americas. A regional delegate grants the cohesion of the center.
