ATHENA Visiting Researcher ProgrammeVenue: Orléans, France Date: between 2 and 12 months For experienced researchers (5 years +) of all fields of study
The University of Orléans and Le Studium Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies open a second Call for applications for the ATHENA Visiting Researcher Programme. It targets experienced international researchers having and keeping a salary in their home institution and willing to join a laboratory in Centre-Val de Loire region for a scientific residency for a period of 2 to 12 months.
Beyond supporting the international mobility of researchers, the programme aims to strengthen the scientific links between the laboratories of the University of Orléans and laboratories based in partner universities of the ATHENA alliance.
This programme targets experienced international researchers who have to embody, in their profile, the key words that capture the research values of LE STUDIUM: Curiosity, Imagination and Intuition. These values help to create a dynamic outwards-looking international scientific community that recognises the benefits of international, multi- or interdisciplinary and intersectoral research approaches. The awards’ package creates conditions that catalyse the development of scientific and human interactions between the laboratories of the different partner universities to strengthen research & development and educational schemes pursued in the ATHENA European University Programme.
This call for applications does not target specific research themes. While applications with a link to ATHENA’s thematic focus (digital transformation) are particularly encouraged, all projects (except research directly linked to military applications) will be given equal consideration according to their scientific merit.
The programme offers full housing support (installation of the visiting researcher and their family in Orléans; accommodation, logistics, and administrative support) and integration into the LE STUDIUM scientific community.
