CNRS and Imperial Leaders meet

Seed funding to accelerate advances in mathematical and data sciences 

How to Apply

Please download the Imperial-CNRS Collaboration Fund Call Guidance (PDF) and complete the Imperial-CNRS Collaboration Fund application form (WORD)‌.

The deadline for submissions is 1 November 2020.

For any questions regarding the fund, please contact Heather Kerst.

The Imperial - CNRS Collaboration Fund will enable Imperial academics to collaborate with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) to scale-up and accelerate advances in mathematical and data sciences. 

A total of £32.5k in financial year 2020/21 is available to Imperial academics to develop and reinforce lasting contacts with the very best CNRS researchers in their field. The call can support collaborations within the remit of mathematical and data sciences and their application in science, technology, medicine and business.

 Bids that seek to develop or link to the activities of CNRS-Imperial "Abraham de Moivre" International Lab in Mathematics are particularly encouraged. This includes all domains of fundamental and applied mathematics and of their interactions with other fields, such as physics, computer science, engineering, medicine and life sciences.

The goal is for these collaborations to support Imperial academics to initiate and pursue collaborations with CNRS colleagues and ideally to lead to new science and to future applications for external funding.  Proposals are encouraged where appropriate to include an industry partner or industry engagement within the proposal or to involve Ph.D. students and early career researchers. 

 Please find the guidance document and application form for the Collaboration Fund linked in the 'How to Apply' box.

The deadline for applications is 1 November 2020.
