Ulysses Research Programme 2014-2015
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.
- Dr Orla Feely, Chair of the Irish Research Council, Dr Katherine O’Callaghan, Irish Research Council Fellow based and H.E the French Ambassador, Mr Jean-Pierre Thébault.
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.
Ulysses is managed (in Ireland) by the Irish Research Council and the French Embassy, and (in France) by Campus France, the French exchange agency.
The closing date for applications is 12th September 2014.
Results will be published on the website of the French Embassy end of December 2014.
