RESEARCH IN PAIRS
Research in Pairs at CIRM enable researchers to focus on specific projects, such as putting the final touches to an article or a book, working on a specific problem, starting a collaboration etc.
The application should describe in details what the objectives are and why this meeting could bring in some new developments regarding the chosen project.
Teams can gather up to 4 people ; up to 3 participants are totally subsidized for board and lodging at the centre.
CIRM insists on welcoming groups who are international, of all genders and with diverse experience (i.e a mixture of early career researchers and more mature researchers).
Research in Pairs usually last 1 or 2 weeks - and exceptionally up to 3 weeks. This may depend on the content of the programme and on vacancies at CIRM at the chosen period.
Board and lodging at CIRM is granted by CIRM for up to 3 participants from outside the Marseille region for a maximum of 2 weeks. Additional participants and local participants need to be supported by external funds.
A bit more information...
Applications are open all year round but note that this type of event runs alongside one or more larger events such as conferences or workshops. The calendar gets filled up quickly and CIRM cannot host more than two research in pairs per month in general (see the calendar).
Each proposal is studied by members of CIRM's International Scientific Committee. A decision is usually made within 6 weeks after receiving the proposal.
If the proposal is successful, the Event Coordinator contacts the main proposer to find suitable dates.
Research in pairs follow the same pattern as other events and run from a Sunday night / or Monday morning to the following Friday (for one week) or to the Friday two weeks later (in the case of a two-week event).
CIRM has studios onsite that are equipped with cooking facilities - for the week-ends when the restaurant is closed. These studios are normally reserved for Research in Pairs events, especially those lasting two weeks. Note that you may be booked in a bedroom rather than a studio in the case of a one-week event.
Letters of confirmation and letters for visa applications can be provided upon request (more here).
Facilities include a seminar room adapted to the size of your group, blackboard or whiteboard / video-projection equipment / 24/7 access to CIRM's library / Free photocopying, scan, printing, Wifi, coffee breaks / Access to all facilities at CIRM including the lounge bar.
