Priority will be given to promoting cooperation between the academic world and engineering schools/socio-economic partners.

Eligible Projects

This funding will support projects contributing to:

– The establishment/initiation/strengthening of international, inter-disciplinary and/or inter-unit ISblue collaborations;
– The animation of the theme (intra-theme seminars, meetings with the socio-economic world for example);
– The strengthening of the research-training link;
– The development of research questions in line with the objectives of the themes;
– Or support for the emergence of future structuring projects for the theme;

In order to simplify the evaluation of your application, it must be related to only 1 ISblue theme (see scientific description of the themes).

The steering committees for each theme will evaluate the applications within 1 month after the deadline.
