To develop the IdA’s strategy of transdisciplinarity and transnationality, the Conosur Pole is structured in two axes.
Reinforcement of the partnerships with universities and institutions
In an academic point of view, the Conosur Pole contribute to reinforce the partnerships between French institutions of higher education and research and Argentinian, Uruguayan, Chilean, and Paraguayan faculties, promoting international mobility of French students and young researchers.
In an institutional point of view, the Conosur Pole work with the French Institute in Argentine, the University of Buenos Aires and the Franco Argentinian Centre of Advanced Studies. Sometimes, it could work with some local institutions to develop common projects.
Promotion of scientific research
The Conosur Pole organizes several academic activities (conferences, seminars, Congress, etc.) with the local partners, in order to promote and to increase scientific exchanges between France and the Conosur’s countries.
The Conosur Pole is created in 2018 thanks to a partnership between the French Institute of Argentina and the University of Buenos Aires about the integration of the IdA in the Franco Argentinian Center of High Studies (FAC). Since 1996, this Center works to develop scientific cooperation between French and Argentinian universities. Associated with the School for Advanced Studies in the social sciences and the Paris Cité University, the FAC is today a fundamental institution to promote the French research in all the Southern Cone’s countries.
