Support for research projects

The Labex offers support for its members' research projects by launching a gradual, ongoing call for projects. We hope to support diverse projects or actions :

  • « uphill » projects involving some risk
  • projects providing structure for the Labex, with the goal of bringing together its various disciplines and laboratories
  • projects that foreshadow : in preparation for responses to national or international proposals
  • setting up international collaboration
  • setting up training

Interdisciplinary projects and those projects including partners from at least two of the Labex's laboratories will be given priority. This is meant as start-up support (complementing already-acquired support). The start-up budget is 10,000 €, but you need not hesitate to ask for much less or a bit more if your request is duly justified. There are two types of requests :

  • consumable budget : equipment, personnel (hourly pay), operations, transfers
  • access to the experimental platforms (during days of use)
Selection criteria are :
  • quality of the project and its relevance to the Labex
  • scientific perspectives
  • effects on the structure of the Labex
  • originality
The selection process will be as follows :
  1. start of the project (see composition below)
  2. analysis by the Board of Directors, release of an evaluation and an eventual request for further details and information
  3. creation of the definitive file
  4. final selection
Given that the Board of Directors meets every month, the delay between the beginning of the application period and the final selection is from one to two months. Files are a maximum of 5 pages long (not including appendices) and must contain :
  • project description
  • context in relation to the goals of the Labex
  • consistency with the goals of the proposal
  • partner list
  • budget
