Ecological connectivity to maximise biodiversity conservation between marine protected areas in the Southwest Indian Ocean - SIOMPA 2023
The Southwest Indian Ocean (SWIO) basin is a globally recognized hotspot of endemism and biodiversity. It is home to many spatially fragmented Marine Protected Areas (MPA), which are essential in maintaining marine ecosystems. A crucial element, which requires further investigation, is the ecological connectivity, often highlighted in the design of MPAs and the guarantees of conservation success.
Specific support for research works and innovation for defence: thematic call on space and deep seabed
The French National Research Agency (ANR), in partnership with the French Defence Innovation Agency (AID), is launching the 2023 call for proposals ASTRID: Deep Seabed and Space. The program is entirely funded by the AID and is implemented by ANR.
Call for proposals MATHILDE: maturing of innovations on specific Defence thematics – thematic call on Deep Seabed and Space

Although climate change is a global phenomenon, its influence on ecosystems varies from region to region depending on local specificities, giving rise to the need in accurate and cross-sectional knowledge on the consequences of climate change as a function of territorial characteristics.
The Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) Network in collaboration with CHANSE (Collaboration of Humanities and Social Sciences in Europe) is launching a new call for proposals: “Crisis – Perspectives from the Humanities”. We wish to invite transnational consortia to submit proposals for humanities-led research under this theme. Proposed research may draw upon insights and methodologies from a wide spectrum of arts and humanities disciplines. Although humanities-driven, consortia can involve contributions from other research domains where appropriate.
Joint laboratories between research organizations and SMEs or intermediate-sized enterprises (Labcom) Call for proposals 2023
The purpose of this program is to encourage research actors to create new structured partnerships through the creation of "Joint Laboratories" between a SME or an intermediate-sized enterprise and a research laboratory. A Joint Laboratory is defined by the signing of a contract defining its operation, including:
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).
To close the “AI for Humanity” day of debates held in Paris on 29 March 2018, the President of the French Republic delivered a speech on Artificial Intelligence (AI). As a continuation, a national program for AI was initiated, with a major section dedicated to research. The Villani report identifies four priority sectors posing major public-interest goals, including the environment.
Social sciences and Humanities Research to improve health care implementation and everyday life of people living with a rare disease - EJP RD 2021
The European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP RD) has been established to help in coordinating the research efforts of European, Associated and non-European countries in the field of rare diseases and implement the objectives of the International Rare Disease Research Consortium (IRDiRC). Since 2019 it continues the funding effort of ERA-Net E-Rare that has successfully implemented ten Joint Transnational Calls for rare disease research projects between 2006 and 2018.
The ANR launches in collaboration with the ERA-NET NEURON and the European Commission a joint call to support multinational, collaborative research projects addressing disorders of the nervous system arising during development and affecting the acquisition and execution of intellectual, motor and/or social functions. The present call is limited to disorders having shown their first manifestations before the end of the adolescence. A lifetime perspective is allowed only if addressing the consequences of disorders starting before the adolescence.
