The international policy of the IdA fits into the project of creating a Euro-American teaching space expressed in the establishment of twelve centers across the American continent. The IdA, with the cooperation of universities in its network, contributes to developing a reflection on dual degrees and to facilitating exchanges between universities, professors and students from the Americas and Europe.
The IdA has established 12 centers across the Americas whose missions are to:
- Spread and promote French research and higher education teaching on the Americas,
- Be a place for exchanges between European and American experts,
- Promote the activities of IdA’s network members and its scientific policy.
Functioning of the centers
The centers are coordinated by the laureates of the doctoral contracts “Institut des Amériques”.
The doctoral laureate resides 10 months per year on the site that he is coordinating, enabling him to become familiar with activities related to the dissemination and the promotion of research by engaging in scientific and partnership actions. He collaborates with local actors and with IdA’s international relations team.
