The LE STUDIUM RESEARCH CONSORTIUM award enables the creation of a team of five international researchers under the leadership of a regional laboratory who will have the opportunity to meet on a regular basis in the Centre-Val de Loire region. The consortium project must have well-defined research objectives, a work-plan to implement and clear milestone goals to achieve between meetings. It can serve different objectives and consists in a solid basis to build a sustainable collaboration among a small group of international partners and prepare a larger project to access international funding.

The award funds the full organisation, travels, accommodation and meals for the whole group to meet twice a year during two years.

This LE STUDIUM Research Consortium award allows a starting date of the first Consortium members meeting from January to May 2024.

More information is available in the Guidelines document. Indicative application format instructions and template (PartB) are also available below.

Applications must be completed online on the LE STUDIUM website. Applications submitted by email will not be considered nor evaluated.

Deadline for submission of applications is set on 16th February 2023 at 5:00pm (CET Paris time).
