Publication of the first results of the first stage of the Generic Call for Proposals (AAPG) 2019

The French National Research Agency (ANR) has sent the scientific coordinators the results of the evaluation of the pre-proposals submitted and registered in phase 1 of the AAPG 2019. Find out how these results are distributed by funding instruments, scientific evaluation panels and major disciplinary areas.

In phase 1 of the AAPG 2019, ANR received 6,560 eligible pre-proposals, 2,735 of which were invited to submit a full proposal in Phase 2. The selection rate for the first stage of the AAPG 2019, for the three funding instruments PRC, PRCE and JCJC, was thus 41.7%.

The results of stage 1 of the AAPG 2019 were distributed as follows:

  • 1,746 PRC (Collaborative Research Projects) pre-proposals selected out of 4,141 eligible pre-proposals, i.e. a selection rate of 42.2%;
  • 248 PRCE (Collaborative research project involving enterprise(s)) pre-proposals selected out of 635 eligible pre-proposals, i.e. a selection rate of 39.1%;
  • 741 JCJC (Young researchers) pre-proposals selected out of 1,784 eligible pre-proposals, i.e. a selection rate of 41.5%;
  • 912 eligible International collaborative research projects (PRCI) registered in stage 1 and automatically invited to submit a full proposal in stage 2.

The second stage of the AAPG 2019 will be held from 19 February to 26 March 2019, at 1pm (Paris time). Scientific coordinators are invited to refer to the provisional timetable and the 2019 AAPG documents on the Call for Proposals page.


The Generic Call for Proposals – AAPG

The AAPG is ANR's main call for proposals and is open to all scientific communities and all public and private actors involved in French research. It mobilizes four instruments which are used to fund individual research projects coordinated by young researchers (JCJC), collaborative research projects between public entities in a national or international context (PRC and PRCI respectively), and public and private entities with a potential opening to the world of business (PRCE).

The AAPG evaluation process is the responsibility of the scientific evaluation panels, each of which corresponds to one of the call's areas of research. Projects are assessed against criteria set out in the call's text and which are used both by the members of panels and by outside experts.
