Bilateral programmes - Dumont d’Urville [fr]
In November 2005 an arrangement was signed between the French ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) and the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI), together with the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
After five successful years, both countries committed to the relationship indefinitely in November 2010. The broad purpose of the arrangement is to promote and support scientific and technological cooperation between New Zealand and French researchers in the public, non-government and private sectors.
All fields of scientific research are eligible for funding. Decisions are made in March for projects starting from April. Please note that applications are required to be made in both countries (i.e. France and New Zealand).
New Zealand applications, in English, should be made to The Royal Society of New Zealand
French applications should be made online in French via the CampusFrance website:
