Germaine de Staël: The Franco-Swiss programme to support researchers' mobility

Clarisse Faria-Fortecoëf

The objective is to develop scientific and technological exchanges of excellence and to foster new cooperations between research laboratories of both countries.
Germaine de Staël programme is run in France by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE) and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research  (MESR) and for Switzerland by the Swiss Academy of Engineerign Sciences (Schweizerische Akademie der Technischen Wissenschaften - SATW).

Calls for application, issued on an annual basis, are open to research laboratories affiliated with academic institutions, research organizations or companies.

Active participation of young researchers, especially PhD students and postdocs, is one of the very first criteria of selection.

The financial support only covers mobility expenses of French researchers.

Projects in all areas of science are considered including Humanities and Social Sciences.

Deadline for application: May 3, 2013.
