This specific, interdisciplinary and non-thematic call for projects, of the "Research-Action" type, is inspired by the Quebec programme AUDACE. It aims to support projects with an atypical and original character that explore new territories of knowledge by relying on new collaborations between different fields of research, in order to respond to new ambitions, questions and needs in close relation with society.
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.
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.
The French Health Innovation Plan 2030 aims to return France to its position as leader in Biology and Health innovation. To reach the best international level, France must extend its commitment to the whole value chain, from basic Life Science research to translational and clinical health research, and support innovation. It must provide enough resources to attract or maintain nationally the world’s top researchers in their field. These researchers, who are leaders in Biology and Health research, will strive to make France a leader among countries capable of producing scientific knowledge, of generating innovation and encouraging Biotech and Medtech development to improve public health, attract international investments, and major health industrials.
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 French National Research Agency (ANR) participates in a “Collaborative Research Action” (CRA) launched in 2023 by the Joint Programming Initiatives (JPI) on Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPI CH) and Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe (JPI Climate), and the Belmont Forum. This funding opportunity focuses on research challenges at the interface of cultural heritage and climate change.
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.
Climate change and Energetic transition : Impacts for Defence – Call for expressions of interest - 2023
The French National Research Agency (ANR), in collaboration with the French Defence Innovation Agency (AID), is launching the call for expression of interest “Climate change and Energetic transition : Impacts for Defence”. Applicants are invited to submit proposals to enhance knowledge about climate change and energy transition and their implications for Defence for one or more of these priorities:
Co-construction of Sustainable Uses of Resources and Infrastructures d’une Eau devenant Rare – COUDRIER
COUDRIER is a participatory research project on the water resource in a micro-territory weakened by repeated droughts due to climate change: The Grand Site de France (GSF) "Bibracte - Morvan des Somme
