As of today, it is composed of four centers and three antenna offices established in relation to the main research and higher education establishments in the Parisian region.

It is important to us that international students and researchers in the Île-de-France region are provided with high quality welcome services. Our mission? To help remove the main obstacles to internationals mobility - whether they be administrative, logistical, or cultural - so that students, PhD candidates, and researchers have the most enjoyable and productive stay as possible in the region.

All of the acc&ss centers are members of the EURAXESS Services network and embody its principles. They accompany international researchers while simultaneously supporting the establishments of higher education and research that host them, especially when it comes to the recruitment of international researchers. What makes our regional network stand out is our support of both researchers and students.
