  Public Health Team



What for?

Inserm is one of France's key public health players, with a remit encompassing all the scientific disciplines contributing to clinical research and public health. Maintaining and improving public health is one of the major mandates of our time and a concern shared by both academia and industry.

In this context, the need to pool large-scale health studies between academic and private partners is now widely accepted in order to enhance patient access, to guarantee the availability and mobilisation of investigators given the extremely high costs involved, and responding to growing demand for epidemiological data from the health industry.


63-n13879© InsermTaking advantage of Inserm's unique position and expertise, Inserm Transfert focuses on offering tailor-made support to scientists coordinating large-scale public health projects. We have developed in-house expertise in designing, building and tracking relevant, innovative public-private partnerships for observational studies, whether for cohorts funded by the Investments for the Future programme or existing projects.



What we do

We help you set up and manage your epidemiology and public health projects with industry partners by:

  • proposing potential "match" between industrial and academic teams
  • designing public-private projects and implementing the business strategy
  • negotiating and tracking multiple-partner alliances
  • dealing with scientific, financial, regulatory, ethical and legal concerns.

How do we do it?

The main issues at stake for these public-private projects revolve around scientific value, independence, and transparency. We address them by building partnerships based on:

  • scientific excellence
  • clear and strong governance
  • international quality standards
  • access rights and procedures
  • IP and exploitation rights
