In November 2018, the members of the Network met in Paris during the Institut Pasteur International Network Symposium.

Members discussed the operational issues preventing the implementation of a shared strategy and stressed the need for additional resources in order to be able to better respond to global health issues and establish transversal research programmes with greater impact. They wanted a greater and/or more visible contribution from the Institut Pasteur on behalf of the Network (sheltered foundation), in addition to a more balanced form  of governance (revision of the Association’s articles of association).
