Research stays may include, but are not limited to meetings/research on joint project, meetings for a first contact for future collaboration, work on co-publications, participation in French-Canadian (not international) conferences or seminars, etc.
- Be attached to a laboratory or department of a Canadian or French university or research organization.
- Candidates have never received a grant under the Mourou/Strickland mobility program or the "new collaborations" program of the France Canada Research Fund.
