Call for projects

The Labex offers support for its members’ research projects through an ongoing call for projects. We support diverse projects or actions

  • “At risk” projects
  • 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


    Next Advisory Board meetings :
  • Tuesday october 6 (project submission dealine : september 30 )
  • Tuesday November 3 (project submission dealine : october 28 )
  • Tuesday December 1 (project submission dealine : Novembre 25)

Interdisciplinary projects and projects including partners from at least two 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 can ask for much less or a bit more if your request is fully justified. There are two types of requests :

      • consumable budget : equipment, personnel (hourly pay), operations, transfers
      • access to the experimental platforms (during days of use)

To submit projects: please download the files (see link below):
