The objective of this program is to develop scientific and technological exchanges of excellence between laboratories in Australia & France, by encouraging new cooperation and the participation of early career researchers. Submitted projects must be joint research projects involving at least a French and an Australian research partner.
This program will be implemented through three specific instruments:
- Workshops Scheme: supports the organisation of bilateral scientific workshops, jointly designed by French and Australian research groups on thematics of strategic interest for the future of the cooperation. Due to the pandemic, particular attention will be given to proposals for online workshops.
- Researchers Scheme: supports researchers’ mobility from France (French overseas territories included) to Australia to develop scientific and technological exchanges of excellence between laboratories in both countries.
- PhD Scheme: aims to support PhD candidates’ mobility between the two countries with the view to establish or consolidate individual connections between French and Australian research labs.
