DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: 2 APRIL 2018, 10pm, AUSTRALIA EAST TIME

 

The French Embassy in Australia puts in place in 2018 a brand new set of research collaborative instruments under the umbrella of the PHC FASIC program.  This program is meant as a catalyst and aims to support the launch and the critical early-stage development of bilateral research projects between France and Australia. It also aims to support the strategic scaling-up of science and technology collaborations.
In a nutshell, the FASIC will contribute to initiate or reinforce bilateral research collaborations, will enable scientists from France and Australian research institutions to meet and discuss future collaborative projects. This program is meant to support the establishment of joint research labs or scientific networks between France and Australia.

 

Submitted projects must be joint research projects involving at least a French and an Australian research partners.

 

Matching fund from the partnering Australian research institutions is requested and will stand as one of the eligibility criteria of the submitted projects.
