UCL Grand Challenges


French Embassy Collaborative Science & Technology Workshops funding available

23 November 2017

The 6th Call for proposals for French Embassy-funded Collaborative Science & Technology Workshops is now open. UCL-based senior researchers (i.e. those with their own research groups) are invited to bid for funds to organise collaborative workshops involving participants from UCL and from research institutions in France.

For academic year 2017-18, the French Embassy's Department of Science & Technology has kindly committed to provide up to £20,000 for support of between three and five workshops (depending on the quality and value for money of applications received). Workshops should focus on research questions of importance in advancing scientific understanding, its application in technology, and/or resolution of complex problems of societal importance. Use of novel cross-disciplinary approaches will be of particular interest in Grand Challenges-relevant proposals.

The deadline for proposals is 0900, Monday 19 February 2018. Funding decisions will be communicated to applicants during the week beginning Monday 19 March 2018.
