Support to scientific conferences

The Embassy supports organisers of scientific conferences in Ireland, in all areas of research, to invite keynote speakers or PhD students and postdocs from France.

The organisers of a peer-reviewed scientific conference in any area of research may request a grant from the Embassy of France in Ireland either:

  • to support the invitation of an outstanding speaker based in France to provide a keynote/plenary lecture or
  • to support the participation of one or more PhD students and postdoc from France.

The organisers will be responsible for promoting the support of the Embassy.

The Embassy of France in Ireland will not provide any direct support to speakers or attendees of conferences. The application must be submitted by the organisers of the event.

Support to a keynote/plenary lecture speaker based in France

Please fill in the form with the information on the invited speaker and the keynote/plenary lecture as it is planned at present time. We understand that this would be a tentative schedule and small adjustments may take place.

If awarded, the grant will preferably be delivered to the organisers who will be responsible for providing support to the speaker.

Support to participation of PhD students and postdocs based in France

As soon as the grand is awarded, the organisers will advertise the support of the Embassy of France as suggested below:

Thanks to funding from the Embassy of France in Ireland, [the organiser] will be awarding a number of student bursaries to support student participation in [the conference]. These bursaries will be awarded on a competitive basis covering student registration fees and a contribution towards travel costs [this sentence might be adjusted]. The eligibility criteria are that applicants must be a full-time or part-time PhD student or postdoc (confirmed by a letter from their supervisor)

Master students may also be supported if they are authoring a research paper selected for presentation after peer-review.

The organisers will receive the applications, select recipients and provide the number of applicants and the name of the recipients to the Embassy of France. The grant will be wired to the conference organisation to be deduced from registration fees and other costs associated for the designated PhD students and postdoc.
