Objective

To encourage research collaborations between two French-speaking researchers (or teams) from different provinces or from a province and a territory, by offering mobility grants. 

Five types of collaborative projects are eligible: 

  1. Collaboration in a research project between two established researchers (research professionals, professors, postdoctoral fellows, etc.); 
  2. Collaboration in a research project between an established researcher and graduate student; 
  3. Collaboration in a research project between two research teams based in different provinces or territories; 
  4. Internship of a graduate student in a research group, a research chair or a scholarly journal, to carry out various mandates that may go beyond research, for example the administration of the journal, linguistic revision, translation, etc.; 
  5. Participation of a graduate student in a summer school in another province or territory. 

Eligibility

Visiting scholars:

Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research professionals and professors who are associated with a public university in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia or Quebec. 

Host environment for visiting scholars:

Professors, research professionals, research chairs and research groups who are associated with a public university in a province or territory of Canada (all provinces and territories are eligible), as well as publishers of French-language or bilingual scholarly journals in a territory or province of Canada.
