par CNRS@ASEAN - publié le

The PHC Merlion Program (Hubert Curien Partnership) is a research mobility funding program, managed by the French Institute of Singapore (IFS), and conducted with our Singaporean partners, which initiates and supports the development of scientific cooperation between French and Singaporean laboratories.

The PHC Merlion Program offers support for collaborations via three options :

  • Merlion Project : Funding of missions between France and Singapore for researchers, post-docs or PhD students involved in a bilateral research project ;
  • Merlion Workshop : Organization of a seminar in France or Singapore around a common theme and likely to lead to a formalized research collaboration ;
  • Merlion Ph.D : funding for Singaporean and French PhD students in France and Singapore for up to 6 months per year over 3 years.


    Distribution overview of the 2018 proposals :
  • 46 joint applications were received between June 15th and September 15th 2018 with proposals involving both research institutions from Singapore and France ; with a repartition as follows : 33 Projects, 7 Workshops, and 6 PhD.
