For More Information
Note: The application form contains a “pre-screening” survey to help applicants assess if their project is appropriate for a FCRF funding.
FCRF aims to accomplish the following objectives:
- Support developing new expert partnerships between France and Canada;
- Promote the advancement of research and innovation;
- Prepare and structure scientific cooperation between the two countries;
- Promote researcher mobility, particularly for young researchers; and
- Provide research training for young researchers.
This program provides financing for new scientific projects jointly developed by French and Canadian teams that have never worked together before.
Joint projects between a French establishment (all universities, Grandes Ecoles and research organizations are eligible) and Canadian Member universities.
The financing is awarded to two-year projects in amounts ranging from $8,000 to $15,000, according to the needs expressed by lead researchers. Financing is primarily intended to support the mobility of researchers and their students.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
