Launch of Ulysses research programme for 2013/2014 [fr]
The programme "Ulysses" is designed to support new research collaborations between Irish and French researchers. It is named Ulysses after James Joyce’s famous novel to celebrate the Joycean links between Ireland and France. The programme facilitates the exchange of innovative ideas and approaches between Irish and French researchers and the development of mutual research projects involving young Irish researchers visiting France and reciprocal visits involving young French researchers to Ireland.
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 favourably received. The programme offers grants of up to 2 x €2,500 to Irish and French researchers to support visits linked to mutual research projects.
In Ireland, Ulysses is funded by the Irish Research Council and Teagasc, and administered by the Irish Research Council. It is funded by MAE (French Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and administered by the Embassy of France in Ireland and Campus France, the leading French agency for international mobility, on the French side.
This year, the Call for Ulysses Awards for Travel in 2014 will open on the 2nd of September 2013.
The programme will fund applications across all fields of research, except clinical medicine. Proposals concerning agri-food research and the rural environment will be processed by the Irish Research Council and funded by Teagasc.

The closing date for receipt of applications will be at 5pm on Monday, 7th October 2013.
