The Paris Seine Initiative is an academic consortium selected by the French government as one of the 19 French Universities of Excellence. It gathers the university of Cergy-Pontoise (UCP), ESSEC Business School, and two engineering schools, EISTI and ENSEA. These four institutions have joined forces under an ambitious project, with the objective to boost their research potential and international attractiveness.
The 2019 Call for Proposals aims to foster the development of scientific excellence, to have a structuring effect on the research strategy of the institutions and participating research teams.
The 2019 Call for Proposals features two programs:
- A call for external applications to the Fellowships in Residence Program of the Paris Seine Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS). This program aims to welcome in residency researchers (junior and senior) for a duration of 4 months to one year. They will be hosted within the IAS in connection with the laboratories of PSI. This program aims to develop the internationalization of research within PSI and to enhance the attractiveness of its partner institutions. (see the call for projects –Fellowships in residence program@ Paris Seine Institute for advanced studies)
- A call for scientific projects open to researchers and faculty members of the Paris Seine Initiative research centers. This call follows up on the AAP2017 and AAP2018 editions by funding doctoral and post-doctoral contracts and Emerging research projects. (see the call for projects – Scientific excellence and internationalization).
