French National Research Institute for Sustainable DevelopmentThe French National Research Institute for Sustainable development is an internationally recognised multidisciplinary organisation. It is a French public institution under the dual supervision of the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation and the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs. It is responsible for an original approach to research, expertise, training and knowledge sharing for the benefit of territories and countries that make science and innovation one of the primary levers of their development.

Institute Pasteur du Cambodge

The Institut Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC) is a Cambodian non-for-profit research institution established in 1953 and reopened in 1992. IPC works under a convention signed with the Royal Government of Cambodia and the Institut Pasteur (Paris, France) in 1992 and renewed in 2013. Under this convention, IPC operates under the auspice of both the Cambodian Ministry of Health and the Institut Pasteur (Paris, France). As main mission, IPC carries out life science and health research on infectious diseases and emerging pathogens. IPC also supports public health surveillance and response through high-quality laboratories and epidemiology/clinical research capacities.

Institute of Technology of CambodiaThe Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC) is an engineering school founded in 1964 with the constant and strong support of the Cambodian government and international academic and development partners. The school provides students with high quality education in the fields of engineering science and technology. ITC’s vision is to become one of the best engineering institutions in the country, with a specific impact on research and innovation for society. ITC contributes to maintaining sustainable development, reducing inequalities in society and improving the quality of the educational system through its internal functioning, its openness to foreign countries and the admission procedure of its students.

Institut Pasteur de Nouvelle-CalédonieThe Institute Pasteur of New Caledonia (IPNC) is a secondary establishment of the Institut Pasteur, a private non-profit foundation of public utility. Its missions are (1) to develop research targeting health and public health problems in New Caledonia and the Asia-Pacific region using multidisciplinary approaches notably through the international Pasteur Network, (2) to share its expertise in public health with health authorities and (3) to participate in the training of scientists and researchers through teaching and trainings. Within the Institute, the Leptospirosis Research and Expertise Unit has been working since 2015 on the risk of leptospirosis linked to an environmental reservoir. This disease places its highest burden in the Asia-Pacific region. Through this dedicated research unit, the Institute Pasteur of New Caledonia has developed several international collaborative projects on leptospirosis.

The Centre Norbert Elias - CNRSThe Centre Norbert Elias brings together researchers from different disciplines, all of whom are convinced that the humanities and social sciences form a whole. The laboratory is located on the EHESS Marseille campus at the Vieille Charité and on the Hannah Arendt campus at Avignon University. It brings together 40 researchers, more than 80 PhD students and a 10-person-strong support team working on the analysis and description of social worlds. Hailing from different intellectual trajectories, the researchers’ interests span multiple sociological and historical theories and references. They share a conception of the social sciences in which inquiry, both in the archives and the field, is an essential characteristic. Intertwined with this is a unwavering attention to forms of description. Over the period 2019-2022, research focuses on the following themes: 1) places of politics, 2) kinship and family, 3) ecologies and care, and 4) forms and processes of culture. These themes are directly linked to the researchers’ activities. This collective scientific project ascribes particular importance to comparison across both time and space. The spatial (Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania) and temporal (early modern and modern) diversity of terrains enables a reinvigorated questioning of the circulation of goods, ideas and people. ITC’s vision is to become one of the best engineering institutions in the country, with a specific impact on research and innovation for society. ITC contributes to maintaining sustainable development, reducing inequalities in society and improving the quality of the educational system through its internal functioning, its openness to foreign countries and the admission procedure of its students.
