The FMSH supports international research networks in human and social sciences.

This programme aims to support the creation or strengthening of international research networks to enable scientific communities to be more structured, collaborate, and give greater visibility to their work.

The call is open to researchers from all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, starting from the PhD level, as well as to research centers. The coordinator must be associated or affiliated with a French research institution or higher education establishment that will host the project for its duration. The other members of the network may be doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows or researchers without affiliation in France or abroad.

The evaluation and selection of projects will be carried out by a scientific committee that will pay particular attention to the following elements:

  • The originality of the theme, the quality and relevance of the scientific project;
  • The international dimension of the network;
  • The interdisciplinarity of the network and the complementarity of the researchers;
  • The involvement of young researchers in the network;
  • The participation of actors from civil society.

Financial support is granted for a period of two to three years for a total amount between 5 000€ and 30 000€ over the period.

This support is intended to cover expenses related to the network's activities (travel, meetings, workshops, etc.), but does not cover personnel costs or salaries.

A funding contract will be established between the FMSH and the network coordinator's institution.
