The Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) has issued a Call for Proposals for new research projects in collaboration between French and the State of São Paulo researchers in the framework of the 2013 Blanc Program, under the Cooperation Agreement signed by the French agency and the FAPESP.
For 2013, the selected themes are “Global Change and Environment/Earth Sciences” and “Microbiology, Immunology, Infectology”, respectively corresponding to the Blanc International 2 panels “SIMI6” and ”SVSE3”.
Proposals must be submitted directly to ANR by the French principal investigator according the rules described in the Call for Proposals published by ANR.
For the applicant researcher in the São Paulo State, the collaborative proposals may be carried out at FAPESP as a Research Award in the Regular or Thematic Project schemes, as determined by the applicant.
Applications should be submitted by January 17th, 2013, using the official application material from ANR, according to the applicable rules and closing dates.
After the submission deadline is reached, applicants from the São Paulo State will be contacted by FAPESP and asked to provide complementary documentation accordingly to the usual rules for the chosen award scheme.
FAPESP and ANR agree to fund the projects on a balanced basis, considering the amount of effort dedicated by researchers on each side. The indicative average funding per country is € 250 thousand for a three-year project.
