It brings together prestigious sponsorships (CNRS, Aix Marseille University, IRD, Collège de france, INRAé) and complementary, testifying to the strong interest of national organisations in this multidisciplinary laboratory. It also benefits from many national supporters (2 EQUIPEX, 2 LABEX and 2 EQUIPEX +) and has contributed to the creation of two major AMIDEX Institutes: ITEM and ARKAIA.
