The « loyalty programme » of CIRM
AIM: TO GIVE RESEARCH THE TIME IT NEEDS
A number of scientific projects need time to mature and achieve their objectives. The aim of this type of project is to offer an opportunity to share progress on a common project and to set key milestones by scheduling one week per year or every 2 years at Cirm, or more, depending on the objectives of the project leaders.
These programs will be programmed over 3 or 4 years or more, with one week’s meeting per year or every 2 years at Cirm, or more, depending on the objectives of the sponsors.
After evaluation by Cirm’s international scientific committee the selected projects will be offered the signature of a multi-year agreement. One year before the first week of meetings, a hearing will be held before the scientific council to clarify the project.
Two types of programmes are available:
Multi-year programme 1: « Mathematics »
The main objective of this programme is to undertake research in all ambitious areas of mathematics and IT, whether they fall into pure research or applied research. The team of investigators will gather mathematicians and/or computer scientists.
Multi-year programme 2: « Mathematics in Interaction »
The main objective of this programme, aimed at cross-disciplinary projects, is to develop mathematical tools in cooperation with other sciences (physics, medicine, biology, economics etc.) in order to meet current and future societal challenges. The proposal must have an equal number of maths specialists and experts in other disciplines.
These projects will need to be supported by external funds outside CIRM that can include ERC Grants, ANR grants, NSF funding etc.)
The cost of a week of full board at Cirm for one participant is approximately 550 euros.
The organizers will benefit from Cirm and its team, its communication means, its hotel infrastructure and its entire management to plan their events with serenity.
ORGANIZE A MULTI-YEAR PROGRAMME
5 days – 50 to 90 participants
The Cirm Scientific Committee examines all applications. The selected conferences are judged on their scientific value and must be at the leading edge of recent developments. Interdisciplinarity is also important as well as international influence: conferences must be influential in their field and attract participants from all over the world. The Cirm scientific Committee will also pay close attention to a gender balance, both in the organizing and scientific committees, and in the number of participants and speakers.
DEADLINE : 12 OCTOBER 2023
The evaluation of the applications is made by the Scientific Committee which includes 20 members (in parity): 10 from French institutions and 10 from foreign institutions. For this reason, information is requested mainly in English. You will be guided through the online submission process and will be asked to submit a pdf file for some sections, or fill in other sections directly online.
The proposal can be submitted in several steps. You can exit the application and return later up until the deadline. Be sure to save regularly.
