France-Canada Research Fund

Clarisse Faria-Fortecoëf

The FCRF aims to foster and develop Franco-Canadian scientific exchanges ; to select projects of excellence ; to promote the involvement of young researchers in the selected research teams

Since its foundation in July 2000, the France-Canada Research Fund (FCRF), has supported more than a hundred of joint research projects.

The institutions participating in the FCRF are : 
- For France : Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs ; Ministry for Higher Education and Research.
- For Canada : 19 partner universities ; Ministry of Industry ; Total company.

Calls for proposals are issued on an annual basis and applications are evaluated simultaneously by a Canadian committee of experts and the representative of the French Ministry for Research. Each selected project receives a 10,000 CAD grant, roughly 6,500 euros.

To have an idea on how to apply and about projects, you can see call for proposals 2009 (closed since November 1, 2008), as well as the list of selected projects by year (2001-2008).

Furthermore, the French Ministry for Higher Education and Research is granting Research Allowances each year to three French “Ecoles Doctorales” involved in three of the best scientific projects selected by the FCRF.
The Baxter & Alma Ricard Foundation has just associated itself to the FCRF and grants one of its scholarship to a Canadian “Francophone” researcher student involved in one of the best scientific projects selected by the FCRF. The maximum amount of this scholarship that can be used in France as well as in Canada, is $150,000 for 3 years.
