2017 Dumont d’Urville science projects announced, 2018 applications open
Four successful New Zealand projects have been announced for the bilateral research programme. Applications for the 2018 programme are open until July 20, 2017.
Each year, the Dumont d’Urville programme supports the mobility of researchers between France and New Zealand. Created in November 2005, this programme is co-financed by France and New Zealand. It aims at developing excellence science and technology exchanges between research laboratories, either private or public, by fostering new partnerships. Since its creation, more than sixty projects have benefited from it. Four new projects have been selected for 2017-2018 and will thus allow researchers to travel between the two countries (see table below).
