Funded by the French government (Programme d’investissements d’avenir – PIA), this call for proposals aims to strengthen collaboration between teacher-researchers, students and administrative staff by initiating projects in training, research, pedagogical innovation, innovation, entrepreneurship and student life with our partners in the Circle U. alliance as well as with our associated partners.
Staff and students at Université Paris Cité are expected to first set up a team with other academic/administrative staff and students from Circle U. universities and then submit a project proposal on behalf of the team. Mixed teams are strongly encouraged.
Proposals for projects
Projects are welcome and expected in the areas of training, research, pedagogical innovation, innovation and entrepreneurship, and student life. All disciplines are eligible. Interdisciplinary projects are encouraged.
The projects must include at least one other Circle U. partner in addition to Université Paris Cité and reinforce Circle U.’s objectives. Projects involving more partners are strongly encouraged. (For more information, please refer to the FAQ and the application form).
