France-Canada Research Fund
The France-Canada Research Fund (FCRF) was created by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a consortium of several renowned Canadian universities, including the Université de Montréal. Its objective is to develop scientific relations between the two countries and enable researchers to establish close relationships.
The French Ministry of Higher Education and Research, the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, and the company Total Canada are associated with the FCRF. The fund is managed in Canada by the University of Ottawa.
The fund operates through an annual call for proposals open to all areas of rese
- life and health sciences
- information technologies
- social sciences and humanities
A bilateral joint committee meets alternately in France and Canada for project selection. Each year, a UdeM evaluation committee preselects five (5) projects to be presented to the bilateral joint committee on behalf of the institution. The FCRF funds between 15 and 20 projects per year. Each selected project receives a grant to support the mobility of researchers and their students.
To find out more about the FCRF’s next call for projects, please visit the website of the French Embassy in Canada.
