In the Africa, Middle-East & India area, Insmi hosts 1 UMI, 1 LIA and 2 GDRI (for definitions of UMI, LIA and GDRI, take a look at the CNRS International Cooperation tool-kit).
Joint research unit
- The Indo-French Centre of Applied Mathematics (IFCAM - UMI 3494) was created in 2012. It is the first CNRS UMI with India. Created in collaboration with the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), IFCAM is located in Bangalore. The main objective of IFCAM is to promote collaboration between Indian and French mathematicians, especially in partial differential equations, information sciences, statistical physics and mathematical biology.
International associated laboratory
- The French-Indian Centre for Mathematics (LIA - CFIM) was created in 2012 by the CNRS and the Department of Atomic Energy (Mumbai). It aims at promoting collaboration btween French and Indian mathematical communities by facilitating exchanges for PhD students and post-doctorates and promoting short visits for mathematicians from both countries.

International research networks
- The Groupement de recherche international Euro-Maghrébin de Mathématiques et leurs Interactions (GDRI - GEM2I) gathers mathematicians from Maghreb (Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia) and Europe (France, Italy, Portugal and Spain). Contact: Gilles Lebeau.
- The International Research Network Geometry and Arithmetic (GandA) gathers mathematicians from Denmark, France, Madagascar and South Africa to work together on themes pertaining to the fields of geometry and arithmetic.
