The joint call is intended to fund joint research projects for 3 years, including funding for Ph.D. students so that they may work towards obtaining their doctorate degrees. The selected joint research project will have two Ph.D. students (one CNRS, one UTokyo) associated with it. The ultimate aim for these students is for them to obtain a doctorate degree based on the work they do on the joint research over the three years.
The call for candidates was open from 22 February 2021 to 22 April 2021.
A total of 40 eligible proposals were received in response to the joint call. Based on the evaluation by experts, a Joint Selection Committee chaired by Prof. Nobuhito SAITO, UTokyo Executive Vice President, and by Prof. Alain SCHUHL, Chief Research Officer, CNRS, selected the six projects listed below.
– At the CNRS: European Research and International Cooperation Department (DERCI), for the attention of Ms. Caroline Danilovic
– At the University of Tokyo: International Strategy Group, Management Planning Department.
