The partnership agreements
Certain agreements make provisions for the organization of joint symposia. Thus on 23 and 24 May 2011, under the agreement with the Peter Wall Institute of Advanced Studies (PWIAS), an international symposium on "The Commen-sal Microbiota: from Homeostasis to Disease" was organized at the Collège de France by Profs Phillipe Sansonetti (Chair of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases) and Brett Finlay (PWIAS), funded by the PWIAS and the Hugot Foun-dation of the Collège de France.
Finally, some agreements promote PhD or post-doc exchanges. During the year 2011/2012, the Collège de France hosted Francesca Lorandini, from the University of Trento, who was attached to the Chair of Prof. Antoine Compagnon (Modern and Contemporary French Literature: History, Criticism, Theory). This PhD students' visit was funded by the Hugot Foundation of the Collège de France.
Four new agreements were recently signed, one (14 March 2011) with the Pavia Istituto Universitario di Studi Supe-riori/IUSS, the other (28 September 2011) with the University of Trent, the University of Tokyo (Tdai) (29 Novem-ber 2012), University of Lisbon (17 January 2013). These agreements make provisions for the creation of Chairs to host junior researchers, and for organizing exchanges between junior researchers from across the world.
