The main objective of this strategy for debates is to increase the quality and quantity of exchanges between actors on global and transdisciplinary subjects, in a logic of dialogue and cross perspectives.

The development of intellectual exchanges brings debates into political life in the larger / broadest sense.

Café Philo brings together philosophers, public intellectuals, writers, artists and experts around a common theme and is connected throughout the network.

Moreover, every year we celebrate the stream of ideas between both countries, cultures, topics and generations through the Night of Ideas, giving the opportunity to discover the latest discoveries in knowledge and arts.

A partnership with the Collège de France to create an itinerant Chair of the Collège at the best Indian academic institutions completes these actions and aims at both exchange and academic training.
