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).
The CETPartnership Joint Call 2022 is the first annual co-funded call under the CETPartnership and is co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe Partnership scheme. For France, the ANR participates to the funding of this call with Ademe and the Région Pays de la Loire.
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.
The ANR launches in collaboration with the ERA-NET JPcofuND 2 a rapid action call for leading scientists to establish a number of ambitious, innovative, multi-disciplinary and multi-national expert Working Groups to discuss and align the specific needs of patients and currently available supply by the health and social care system, thereby outlining strategies to improve support for people particularly at moderate, advanced and end of life stages of disease progression.
SPECIFIC SUPPORT FOR DEFENSE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION WORK - THEMATIC CALL FOR PROJECTS ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
The National Research Agency is launching, with the Defense Innovation Agency (AID) as partner, the call for projects ASTRID Artificial intelligence. This program is fully funded by AID and is hosted by the ANR, which ensures its implementation.
Transnational Call for Projects on Nanomedicine in the context of ERA-NET EuroNanoMed III - 2021 Edition

JPcofuND 2. Linking pre-diagnosis disturbances of physiological systems to Neurodegenerative Diseases
The ANR launches in collaboration with the ERA-NET JPcofuND 2 a joint call to support multinational, collaborative research projects to identify nervous system dysfunctions leading to physiological disturbances observable before the appearance of unequivocal symptoms of Neurodegenerative diseases.
FLAG-ERA (the Flagship ERA-NET) gathers National and Regional Funding Organisations (NRFOs) in Europe and beyond with the goal of supporting, together with the European Commission, the FET Flagship initiatives, i.e., the Graphene Flagship and the Human Brain Project (HBP) Flagship. One of its main aims is to set up and launch dedicated transnational calls to complement the Flagships.
The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, combined with the economic distress caused by the financial crisis and the catastrophic explosion in the port of Beirut on August 4, 2020, will have long-term consequences not only on the Lebanese economy but also on the Lebanese scientific research ecosystem.
