Call for projects

ILCB offers support for its members’ research projects through ongoing calls for projects. We support diverse projects or actions

  • “At risk” projects
  • projects providing structure for the ILCB, 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 Scientific Council meetings 2021 :
  • Tuesday, March 2 (project submission dealine : February 25)
  • Tuesday, April 6 (project submission dealine : April 1st)
  • Tuesday, May 4 (project submission dealine : April 29)
  • Tuesday, June 1 (project submission dealine : May 27)
  • Tuesday, July 6 (project submission dealine : July 1st)


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):

Selection criteria :

    1. Scientific quality of the project
    2. Relevance to ILCB
    3. Originality / continuation of an on-going project
    4. Complementarity of expertise (collaborations encouraged but not necessary)
    5. Match between requested funding and project (co-funding)
    6. Historic of funding by ILCB
    Selection process:

    • 1. Evaluation by the Eval group and by the Scientific Council
    • 2. Eventual request for further details and information
    • 3. Final selection

Given that the Scientific Council meets every month, the delay between the beginning of the application period and the final selection is from one to two months. Projects’ description is maximum 5 pages (not including appendices) and must contain all the information listed in the “Formulaire Projet Scientifique”. Download Files:
