The New Scientific Collaboration Support Program, financed by the France-Canada Research Fund (FCRF) provides financial support for new scientific projects developed by French and Canadian teams that have never worked together before. It aims to accomplish:

  • Support developing new expert partnerships between France and Canada,
  • Promote the advancement of research innovation,
  • Prepare and structure scientific cooperation between two countries,
  • Promote researcher mobility, particularly for young researchers, and
  • Provide research training for young researchers


Submitted proposals must be joint projects between a French establishment (all universities, Grandes Écoles, and research organizations are eligible) and one of the 20 FCRF’s Canadian member universities (Carleton is a member).

Available Funding

  • Funds ($8,000 – $15,000) are awarded to two-year projects according to the needs expressed by the principal investigators
