Opportunities in France: Land of Innovation and Scientific Excellence

France offers opportunities for both young and experienced researchers to work or lead teams in laboratories, universities and national research institutions and enjoy the French “art de vivre.” The landscape for innovation and technology transfer has been transformed in recent years thanks to a National Investment Plan to increase the visibility and efficiency of these fields. The situation in France is particularly favourable for scientists and entrepreneurs looking to establish themselves within strong national, European and international networks
