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

12 décembre 2018

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 on both sides over the next year 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.”
