Le CNRS et l’Université de Toronto ont sélectionné trois projets à l’issue du nouvel appel conjoint « Twin Research Scholars »/ The CNRS and the University of Toronto have selected three projects from their new joint "Twin Research Scholars" call.

The CNRS and the University of Toronto have strengthened their strategic partnership for several years. The University of Toronto, recognized worldwide for the intensity and excellence of its scientific research, is among the Canadian universities that collaborate strongly with the CNRS, particularly in terms of co-publications and cofunded projects. For instance, since 2019, three joint doctoral calls have also been launched, supporting some thirty young Canadian and French talents.

The objective of this new call is to identify innovative and multidisciplinary research projects, including research training activities, and to fund them for a period of three years, with the possibility of renewal for two additional years.

The CNRS and the University of Toronto are very pleased with the quality of the projects submitted, demonstrating the strong dynamics and potential of Franco-Canadian cooperation:

The selected projects highlight the excellence and potential of the partnership between our two institutions in all areas of science. Involving three French universities, their diversity will also contribute to the strengthening of Franco-Canadian ties in several key areas of transatlantic scientific cooperation.

Antoine Petit, CEO of CNRS

The three awarded projects are :

– « New Directions in Philosophy of Physics: Approximation, Precision, and Discreteness », coordinated by Vincent ARDOUREL (Institut d’Histoire et de Philosophie des Sciences et des Techniques ; CNRS/Université Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne) and Mike MILLER (Department of Philosophy, Université de Toronto)

– « Quantum communication applications based on entanglement and hyperentanglement », coordinated by Eleni DIAMANTI (Laboratoire d’informatique de Sorbonne Université; CNRS/Sorbonne Université) and Li QIAN (Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Université de Toronto)

– « Finding needles in haystacks: New strategies for mapping molecular orientation, association, and dynamics in biology», coordinated by Martin OHEIM (UMR8003 – Institut des Neurosciences Paris Saint-Pères ; CNRS/Université Paris Cité) and Christopher YIP (Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Université de Toronto).

The projects will start their activités on January 2023.

The University of Toronto greatly values our partnership with CNRS.  The three selected proposals clearly demonstrate the promise of the Twin Research Scholars initiative. We congratulate the successful candidates and look forward to supporting these excellent projects
