Singapore: PHC Merlion call now open

by CNRS@ASEAN - published on , updated on

This is already the 11th Call since the launch of the Merlion Program. More than 180 bilateral collaboration projects have been funded since inception.

The PHC Merlion Program is a joint French-Singaporean collaboration, managed by the Institut Français de Singapour, in partnership with Singaporean institutions to encourage and support new scientific research development between French and Singaporean laboratories, through funding the scientists’ trip exchanges. There are three different funding opportunities:

• Merlion Project: Funding of missions between France and Singapore for researchers, post-doctoral and doctoral students involved in a joint research project.
Up to €30,000 over two years

• Merlion Workshop: Co-organising a workshop based on a common theme, to be held in either France or Singapore, with the aim of eventually leading to a bilateral research agreement.
Up to €30,000

• Merlion Ph.D: Funding of stays in France and in Singapore of up to 6 months per year (maximum 3 years) for Ph.D students from a Singaporean or French partner laboratory.
Up to €23,000 over three years
