Programme Atlas

The Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme (FMSH) and its partners offer postdoctoral mobility grants to researchers in the humanities and social sciences for periods of 2 to 3 months. Two strands of the programme are on offer:

  • INCOMING programme: This programme targets researchers affiliated with an institution of higher education and research or a public/private research institute based overseas wishing to undertake a research stay in France.
  • OUTGOING programme: This programme targets researchers residing and affiliated with a French institution of higher education and research or a public/private research institute who would like to undertake a research stay in another country.

Please refer to the different calls to find out what arrangements apply to the competition you have chosen (geographical area, length of the fellowship) and the application procedure.

Since its creation in 2014, the ATLAS programme has supported the mobility of over 350 researchers.

Key figures per year

  • 2 applications campaigns
