Each year, the Agency also concludes non-thematic “Lead Agency” bilateral agreements with partners in European countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg) in which an agency handles project-related submissions and evaluations. These agreements allow French researchers to propose projects with teams from one of these countries and create scientific communities that extend across borders. Strategic partnerships on key issues also lead to bilateral agreements and specific appeals. The NRO is working with the Federal Research Ministry (BMBF) to strengthen Franco-German scientific cooperation in areas such as energy, materials, antibiotic resistance and civil security.

The project supports the IMB in this restructuring work through 4 activities: The project aims to strengthen the TVET training system in order to improve the socio-professional integration of Liberian youth in the labour market. After five years, at least 2,000 Liberian youth are expected to be trained in much-needed technical skills in the fields of electricity, construction, agriculture and coding. In North America, the Agency has developed several collaborations with the American National Science Foundation (NSF) in the field of PIRE and CRCNS programs. It also has partnerships with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) in Canada in the areas of environment, energy and digital technology, as well as with the Quebec Environmental and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Fund (QRF).
