2010 - Launch of Ulysses programme for research visits
The Embassy of France in Ireland, in association with IRCSET (Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology) has launched the 2011 Ulysses Research visits scheme between France and Ireland.
The Ulysses programme facilitates the exchange of innovative ideas and approaches between Irish and French researchers and the development of mutual research projects by supporting young Irish researchers visiting France and reciprocal visits by young French researchers to Ireland. The programme also provides for the organisation of research workshops which bring together researchers from France and Ireland for the purpose of establishing research networks.
Support is provided for short visits to partner institutions and covers travel and subsistence costs. Applications involving researchers at an early stage of their academic career will be a criterion of selection. The programme offers grants of up to 2 x €2,500 to Irish and French researchers to support visits linked to mutual research projects.
IRCSET will fund successful innovative science, engineering and technical applications. Proposals concerning agri-food research and the rural environment will be processed by IRCSET and funded by Teagasc.
For more details about the programme and applications: www.ircset.ie
The closing date for receipt of applications is at 5pm on Friday, 1st October 2010.
