Past calls for proposals
Scientific exploration of data from research infrastructures (ESDIR) - Edition 2023
The ESDIR 2023 call aims at helping the scientific valorization of remarkable data, observations and measurements that can only be realized within the framework of the research infrastructures and long-term programs labeled nationally or internationally. This 2023 edition is dedicated to the research campaigns conducted on two large infrastructures, French Oceanographic Fleet (FOF) and Astronomy and astrophysics using ground-based observatories (A&A), whose data are already acquired (FOF and A&A) or in the process of guaranteed acquisition by the start of the projects (only A&A).

Challenge Mobilex – MOBILity in complEX environnements
In order to accelerate research and innovation on autonomous mobility of land vehicles in complex environments (damaged roads, presence of obstacles, etc.), the French National Research Agency (ANR) and the Defense Innovation Agency (AID) launch a co-funded call: the MOBILEX Challenge (MOBILity in Complicated Environments), in partnership with the French National Center for Space Studies (CNES) and the French Agency for Innovation in Transport (AIT).
Call for proposals on Specific Topics in Artificial Intelligence (TSIA) 2023
Since its 2012 revolution, artificial intelligence (AI) has been introduced at the core of digital solutions and continues to evolve rapidly. These recent developments are notable, both at the core of AI and in its interactions with other research fields. Following the first national AI plan and in response to requests from the community.
Call for proposals – Quantum Sensors - 2023
Within the national quantum strategy, started in 2021, the ANR launches a call for research proposals in quantum sensors and quantum metrology. The roadmap of the national quantum strategy includes a response to needs in the metrology domain, that correspond to developments in quantum technologies.
Quantum Technologies: 4th Call for proposals of the ERA-NET QuantERA
The QuantERA programme, via the ERA-NET Cofund QuantERA II, coordinated by the National Science Centre (NCN), and with the ANR as one of its partners, is launching a new call for proposals to fund transnational research projects in Quantum Technologies, in support to the actions of the Quantum Technologies Flagship. The call gathers 36 funding organisations, including the ANR, in 29 countries.
Increasing health equity through promoting healthy diets and physical activity (HealthEquity) – ERA4Health 2023
The French National Research Agency, in partnership with sixteen countries (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain -including region of Andalusia-, Taiwan, the Netherlands, Turkey) is launching the novel international call for projects on health equity under the umbrella of the Partnership ERA4Health (“Fostering a European Research Area for Health”).

Bilateral Call for Proposals France Japan - Edge Artificial Intelligence - 2023
Japan and France are long-standing partners in the field of information and communication technologies. In the recent years, cooperation has been particularly developed in the field of artificial intelligence with the creation of the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI). Japan has been elected as incoming GPAI Council Chair for 2022-2023 while France was the previous chair. These elections highlight the major roles played by France and Japan in the field of Artificial Intelligence and show the long standing and strong collaboration between the two countries. In this context, MESR and JST are pleased to launch a call on Edge AI to strengthen the tie between the two countries.
