New Zealand researchers have the chance to work in France thanks to the Dumont d’Urville, a programme that aims to foster new partnerships and developing science and technology exchanges between research laboratories of excellence.

The grant will pay for up to $80,000 in total per project for up to two years for travel, research expenses and expenses related to hosting workshops.

Applications for projects starting in 2020 are open now and close on 17 October. Please submit your application to the Royal Society Te Apārangi.

Created in November 2005, this programme is co-financed by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) and the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI), together with the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE). Since its creation, more than sixty-five projects have benefited from a Dumont d’Urville.
