International call on Computational Neuroscience – NEUC 2022

ANR launches in collaboration with NSF, DOE and NIH (USA), BSF (Israel) and NICT (Japan) 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 20-609”.

This program emphasizes innovative research and resources, encouraging the application and development of state-of-the-art computational methods by theorists, computational scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and statisticians to tackle dynamic and complex neuroscience problems. It also emphasizes data and software sharing.

Binational as well as multinational projects can be submitted. The consortium must comprise at least one French partner and one American partner and can additionally include Japanese and/or Israeli partners.

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

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

Opening : 2021-10-01 at 16:00 CEST
Application Deadline : 2021-11-30 at 17:00 CET

General information

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 20-609”.

Submission Modalities

The investigators prepare a project written in English to be submitted to NSF. The project description must include the Annex for  French participants to be included as an additional document together with the submission to NSF. The Annex for French Participants is available on this webpage.

In parallel to the project submission, the French participants must send the Annex for French participants  to ANR by E-mail ( before November 30, 2021.
