Selected – 2015

"Setting up European or International Scientific Networks" (MRSEI)

In the framework of its 2015 Work Programme, the French National Research Agency (ANR) proposes a dedicated instrument for "Setting up European or International Scientific Networks" (MRSEI). Its aim is to facilitate the access of the French researchers to European programs (H2020) and to other international calls and to encourage the formation and coordination of transnational networks.

Funding will only be provided for research networks, in all the disciplines, and that have specifically been set up to prepare and submit a collaborative project in response to a large-scale European or international call for proposals with major scientific, technological or societal impacts.

The selected projects will receive funding of €30,000 for a period of 18 months. The ANR grant is intended purely to fund the operating costs of the project; this call is not designed to offer funding for the research itself.

This instrument has been designed to be flexible and effective, facilitating swift decision-making and fast deployment of funds:

  • a simplified application file;
  • a single beneficiary: the French research organisation, which acts as principal investigator, will receive the funding on behalf of the entire consortium;
  • peer selection carried out by a single ad hoc evaluation panel, without the need to consult external peer reviewers.
