3 new projects selected for the Dumont d’Urville programme 2019-2020 [fr]
Dumont d’Urville is the Hubert Curien Partnership which finances the mobility of researchers between France and New Zealand. Three new projects have been selected and will benefit from funding supporting scientific exchanges between the two countries for 2019-2020.
The Dumont d’Urville program is funded in France by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) and the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI). The program is co-funded in New Zealand by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and administered by the Royal Society of New Zealand in the Catalyst / Seeding category.
As announced during the July 2018 call for applications, the amount granted per project is now up to 20,000 euros (about 33 000 NZD) for the French applicant and 80,000 NZD maximum for the New Zealand applicant.
Three new projects have been selected and will benefit from funding supporting scientific exchanges between the two countries for 2019-2020:
|Project title||Field||French group||New Zealand group||French Principal Investigator||New Zealand Principal Investigator|
|Metal Organic Framework/Enzyme Electrodes for Bioenergy||Chemistry||Département de Chimie Moléculaire - UMR5250||Institute of Fundamental Sciences, Massey University||Gross||Telfer|
