International Research Projects (IRPs) or Projets de Recherche Internationaux (PRI) are thematically open tools.
The IRPs aim to support an existing or emerging promising partnership by giving the means to establish their collaboration over the long term to scientific projects of excellence and strong impact potential, between two or more countries.
The creation of an IRP must demonstrate complementarity between the teams and reciprocal added value for the partners involved.
The ultimate goal is to consolidate a partnership established between an Inserm team and a foreign team (or, depending on scientific relevance, several foreign teams).
For its 2021 call for proposals, Inserm has been aiming for the greater harmonization through geographical targeting based on the country’s investment in research and development
IRP calls in 2021 will exclusively target the following countries or regions :
Austria JapanBelgium NorwayChina NetherlandsDenmark South KoreaFinland SwitzerlandGermany SwedenHong Kong TaiwanIsrael U.S.A
The duration of these joint research projects between an Inserm research team and one (or more) foreign research team(s) is five (5) years.
The selected IRPs will be granted - beyond the resources directly mobilized by the participating laboratories - funding of up to:
- €60,000 for IRPs in Europe; - €75,000 for IRPs outside of Europe.
Opening : June 21st 2021Closing : September 13th 2021, 5:00 PM (Paris Summer Time)
The candidates will be informed of the results at the beginning of the year 2022. The projects will start in 2022.
