Chairs of excellence in Biology and Health - 2023
The Chairs of excellence in Biology and Health measure aims to provide leading researchers of all origins with significant funding to conduct new major projects, over a 5-year period, in France. These Chairs are either open to researchers already working in a French institution, or researchers working abroad and seeking to create a team or join a research institute in France. They will enable the development of their research programmes, and provide leverage to apply to major European calls for proposals.
The budget for this call is set at €80 million, for a maximum amount of €2 million per Chair. This call will be subject to 3 rounds per year, namely 40 to 50 Chairs funded.
Stage 1 is a pre-selection stage, at the end of which only the shortlisted applications will be invited to submit a full application and will be invited to an interview (Stage 2).
