Hubert Curien Partnerships (PHCs)

PHCs are implemented and funded by France’s Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs with support from the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. Most of them are managed by Campus France. 

A partnership consists in a research project jointly developed by two research teams, one French, the other not; once approved, it is co-funded by the two partner institutions. 

The aim of PHCs is to develop scientific exchanges and exchanges of technologies of excellence between research centers that belong to two scientific communities, thereby giving priority to new instances of cooperation. All public and private research centers with links to higher education institutions, research organizations, or private companies are eligible for PHC partnership funding.
