Director’s Message


Welcome to the French Institute in India!

Be it in the field of education, sciences, culture or innovation, count on us to create fruitful, long-term partnerships between you and France.

Contact us about your dreams and your projects: studying in France, welcoming French writers, launching joint research programmes, getting a professional training. With our spirit of innovation, creativity and partnership, we will help you find answers.

Browse through our various sections: Study in France programme, French Language & Education, Academic Partnerships, Science & Technology, Innovation and Multimedia, Arts & Culture, as well as Books & Ideas, to know more.
