The Louis Pasteur Villa

Built under the lead of the Foundation, the Villa Louis Pasteur is an international center with a scientific mission, located at 3 rue des Ursulines in Paris 5th. Its name is a tribute to the history of its location: it was here that in the 19th century the laboratory instruments of Louis Pasteur were manufactured, among others, by the Wiesnegg workshops.

A center of excellence dedicated to relations between businesses and public research, it is intended to accommodate professors and researchers invited to the École Normale Supérieure or to one of the scientific establishments in the Paris region. It offers apartments and studios, located in the heart of Paris, specially adapted for short and medium stays.
