This Scientific Collaboration Support Program, financed by the France-Canada Research Fund (FCRF), aims to support developing new expert partnerships between France and Canada by promoting researcher mobility, particularly for young researchers, and students.

This program provides financing for new scientific projects jointly developed by French and Canadian teams that have never worked together before. Submitted proposals must be joint projects between a French institution (all universities, Grandes Écoles, and research organizations are eligible) and one of the 20 FCRF’s Canadian member universities.

Focus this year: Specificity 2020 : The call is open as usual to all disciplines, but of all the projects to be funded this year, the FCRF will finance 5 projects on the theme of artificial intelligence.


Open to all research fields and encouraging interdisciplinarity.

Funding Available

The financing is awarded to two-year projects in amounts ranging from $8,000 to $15,000, according to the needs expressed by the principal investigators.
