There are four regional delegation of IRD in mainland France : South-East, Occitanie, Ile-de-France, West.
The regional delegations aim to implement missions and decisions calling for a local response, as close as possible to the joint research units and our partners, with greater responsiveness.
At the service of the units, the regional delegations have the mission to ensure in mainland France:
- administrative, financial management, human resources, logistical and heritage support, communication, prevention and security, innovation and development...
- representation of the IRD with regional partners (universities, local authorities, companies...),
- animation of the scientific community, in collaboration with a scientific referent.
A delegation shares, in a set of services, the means of supporting research for the units and structures within its scope.
