5th Transnational call on Collaborative Research in Computational Neurosciences (CRCNS)

The ANR launches in collaboration with NSF and NIH (USA), BMBF (Germany) and BSF (Israel) a call for research and data sharing projects in computational neuroscience.

This call concerns an opening of the NSF program « Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience » (CRCNS) as detailed in the document « Solicitation 16-607 », downloadable on the NSF website.

The definition of computational neuroscience is broad, encompassing a broad range of computational and biological goals and approaches.

Binational as well as multinational projects can be submitted. The project consortium must include at least one American partner and one French partner.

The proposals will be evaluated according to NSF evaluation procedures in coordination with ANR and the other partner agencies.

Each agency funds the partners in the respective country, according to its own national rules.

Opening : 2016-09-29 at 11:30 CEST
Application Deadline : 2016-12-19 at 17:00 CET

The document « Appendix for French participants » introduces the modalities of the opening of the program ‘Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience: Innovative Approaches to Science and Engineering Research on Brain Function’ (CRCNS) to French-US projects. The instructions for French participants are complementary to the instructions of NSF Solicitation 16-607.

Submission Modalities

The investigators prepare a project written in English to be submitted to NSF. The project description must include the financial form to be filled-in by the French participants. The financial form is available on this webpage.

In parallel to the project submission, the French participants must notify the submission to ANR by E-mail (mathieu.girerd(at) & sheyla.mejia(at) before December 23, 2016.
