Open calls and preannouncements
ANR is associated with the new European Partnership Biodiversa+ to launch the first international call for proposals, Biodiversa+ 2021-2022, on the thematic: « Supporting the protection of biodiversity and ecosystems across land and sea ».
In the framework of its 2021 Work Programme, the French National Research Agency (ANR) proposes the MRSEI call with a continuous submission format throughout the year with two scheduled selection sessions (March and July 2021).
The French National Agency participates to the second international joint research call « Solar-Driven Chemistry 2 » The joint call brings togethrt 6 funding organizations from 6 countries (Finland (AF), France (ANR), Germany (DFG), Poland (NCN), Switzerland (SNSF) and Turkey (TUBITAK). Subject of this call for proposals is fundamental research in all sub-areas relevant to the photochemical transformation of small, abundant molecules, such as carbon dioxide, water or nitrogen, into more valuable, storable chemicals by means of solar radiation.
The seventh round of Open Research Area (ORA) is based on an agreement between the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR; France), the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; Germany), the Economic and Social Research Council of UK Research and Innovation (ESRC; the UK), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC; Canada).
Prior to 2010, Sargassum brown algae bloomed only in the tropical North Atlantic, in the Sargasso Sea. Currently, it has been observed off the Brazilian coast, as far as the Mexican coast and throughout the Caribbean Sea. At the same time, in the western Atlantic, it is flourishing on the African coasts, from Sierra Leone to Ghana, creating the Atlantic Sargassum Green Belt (ASGB) with some continuity between the eastern and western parts. Questions of the influence of climate change on changes in hydrodynamic conditions in the equatorial zone and possibly on changing wind and precipitation drift patterns are not elucidated in relation to the increase and geographic shift in ASGB.
The French National Research Agency (ANR), in partnership with the French Defense Innovation Agency (AID) (attached to the defense procurement agency - DGA), has launched the 2021 ASTRID programme "Specific support for defence research works and innovation : Maturation and Development”. The programme is entirely funded by the AID and is implemented by ANR.
The appelsprojetsrecherche.fr portal centralises all information on calls for proposals and calls for applications from ADEME, ANR, Inserm including ANRS, Anses and INCa. It provides a simplified access to upcoming and ongoing calls, giving a greater visibility to funding opportunities. Following their closing date, the calls remain published for a few months.
