Smart Loire Valley Programme
The call for applications, open from November each year to February next year, offers different innovative award formats designed to stimulate international scientific exchanges, to increase interdisciplinary research, to create synergies between academic disciplines and links with the industrial world and foster socio-economic development.
The programme aims to develop outward looking interdisciplinary teams with a reputation in developing the EU economic landscape. Candidates and proposals are evaluated by independent external peer reviewers and an international independent Scientific Council to select the best candidates and high added-value research projects.
The call is open to all disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities (SSH) and relating to all research fields. Research projects in other sciences and in arts that propose a strong interaction and dialogue with the SSH are eligible. Some host IAS have scientific priorities that need to be taken into full consideration before applying. At LE STUDIUM Loire Valley, Interdisciplinary projects will be favoured in the selection process.
The FIAS Fellows will be free to organise their research while benefiting from the support and conducive scientific environment offered by the IAS characterised by a multidisciplinary cohort of fellows and by close relation to the local research centres and laboratories.
For the 2023-2024 academic year, FIAS offers 38 fellowship positions: 13 in Paris, 10 in Lyon, 4 in Marseille, 4 in Nantes, 3 in Montpellier and 3 in the Centre-Val de Loire region (LE STUDIUM Loire Valley).
*This project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 945408
