All internships need a signed agreement.
In the agreement, the term « Etablissement d’accueil » refers not to the laboratory but to one of the structures that hosts the laboratory: it can be the University to which it is attached, the CNRS, etc. The host laboratory will tell you. The agreement (3 copies in general) must be signed by the Head of this structure, by the internship mentor, by the student, by the « enseignant référent » (i.e., your principal professor in France), and by the Head of the University in which you are enrolled in France.
