New exploratory project call for proposals for the period 2021-2022

The LabEx UnivEarthS is pleased to announce the opening of a new exploratory project call for proposals for the period 2021-2022.

The objective is to support for 2 years (with an evaluation at the end of the first year) research projects exploring new ideas or concepts within the LabEx research topics and initiating new synergies. Innovative, risky and interdisciplinary projects are encouraged.

The budget envelope will be a maximum of 20 k€ per year and will not include personnel expenses (except for trainees).

The projects submitted must involve at least two researchers from two founding laboratories (APC, AIM, IPGP or ONERA) or one researcher from a founding laboratory and one researcher from the following laboratories or institutions: IMCCE, LUTH, GEPI and University of Paris.

First, the project leader is asked to write a letter of intent of about 1 page which should be sent to Aurélia Olivier-Kaiser before July 1, 2020.

The scientific leaders will be informed of the decision of the executive board by mid-July at the latest. If their project is selected, they will then have to write a detailed application by the end of September.
