Call for proposals International Emerging Actions (IEA) 2021 – CNRS Centre national de la recherche scientifique  (France)

 

International Emerging Actions are projects (one from a CNRS research unit and the other belonging to a foreign research institution) whose purpose is to explore new fields of research and international partnerships. IEA are implemented through short-term mobility of scientists, the organization of working meetings and the initiation of early-stage joint research work. The CNRS team will receive a financial support to perform these activities (5 000 to 7 000 € per year). These actions have a duration of two years.

Evaluation and selection criteria

IEA are designed to enhance new research collaborations. Therefore, no pre-requisite in terms of previous exchanges or publications is required. Proposals for IEA are evaluated by peer review within the CNRS scientific institutes based on the following criteria: scientific quality of the project, relevance of the international collaboration, scientific quality and complementarity of teams, participation of PhD students, post docs and young researchers. All scientific proposals are eligible.

However, the following CNRS scientific institutes will pay specific attention to IEA proposals addressing some topics or countries:

INSB : specific attention to marine biology proposals involving Taiwan, India, Japan or Australia.

INSIS : specific attention to proposals involving South Korea, Taiwan, India, sub-Saharan African countries.

INSU : specific attention to projects using data and services proposed by research infrastructures, particularly those enrolled in the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) roadmap. Specific attention to proposals targeting Africa, Antarctica or urban environment.

 INSHS : specific attention to proposals involving sub-Saharan African countries, Singapore and Canada.

Those priorities are defined by the CNRS institute in charge of the evaluation of the project, which can be either the main affiliation institute of the applying CNRS research unit or the evaluating institute requested by the applicant, in specific situation where the topic of the proposal doesn’t come within the competency of the main affiliation institute of the applicant.

Other CNRS institutes (INC, INP, IN2P3, INSMI, INS2I and INEE) will consider all proposals without any topic or geographical priorities.
