I-SITE MUSE relies on a network of international academic partners with which it commits itself over the mid- and long-term. With each partner, the terms of the partnership are specified via a framework agreement detailing the general framework of cooperation between UM, acting on behalf of the I-SITE MUSE, and the said partner. These agreements specify the purposes and forms of cooperation, with the details of each action being defined in specific agreements. I-Site MUSE explores with all these partners the opportunity of large global initiatives, at the crossroads of the 3 pillars Feed/Protect/Care.
