International calls for projects

FACE Foundation - Thomas Jefferson Fund

In 2017, the French Embassy in the United States and the FACE Foundation launched the Thomas Jefferson Fund to encourage and support collaboration between French and American early-career researchers and promote innovative joint research projects. 

Priority goes to the most innovative projects, including long-term trans-Atlantic mobility, collaborative research activities, joint organization of workshops and conferences, joint article publication, and PhD student participation. Grants cover France-United States mobility costs (travel, housing, meals), some of joint conferences costs, and joint publication costs. 

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The National Institutes of Health or NIH are a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. They are the largest biomedical research center in the world, with 27 medical and biomedical institutes and centers that regularly make major discoveries for improving health in America and throughout the world. The NIH aims to spread scientific knowledge that will improve public health by way of national and international projects; its funding strategy is to promote scientific quality. The NIH is the largest of the 8 U.S. agencies in charge of public health and funds over 90% of American health research. 

In accordance with certain criteria, the NIH may grant diverse types of funding (subsidies, contribution agreements, research or career advancement fellowships) to non-US institutions, international organizations and/or international researchers.
