Results of the Call for Joint Research Proposals 2018 between CNRS (France) and University of Toronto

Now in our second year of partnership, the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) in France and the University of Toronto (U of T) are pleased to announce the awardees from the 2018 Call for Joint Research Proposals.

We received twenty-six applications in total, of which four have been selected by a joint committee. The selected projects will cover a variety of research topics and showcase the breadth of both institutions’ research excellence. The joint funding will support the projects with a 7,500 CAD (5,000 €) grant from both institutions and will facilitate the mobility of our researchers.

“We are very excited to announce the recipients of the latest CNRS-U of T partnership grants,” said Professor Christopher Yip, Associate Vice-President, International Partnerships at U of T. “These grants build on a strong history of collaboration between CNRS and U of T and reflect the unique complementarity and synergy between the research teams.”

“CNRS congratulates the awardees of this joint call,” said Dr Patrick Nédellec, Director, European Research & International Cooperation Department at CNRS. “CNRS is proud of its strategic partnership with the University of Toronto, the best Canadian university in world rankings.”
