Antarctic Research Grant
Deadline for applications: 29 July, 2022
France and Australia have close logistical and scientific cooperation in Antarctic-related fields since many years. This cooperation concerns the supply of Antarctic stations, the transport of personnel or the logistics of ice core drilling. Tasmania serves as a regular port of call for French ships bound for the Antarctic, and hosts a large contingent of French researchers employed in Australian organisations.
In order to promote this important potential for scientific cooperation between the two countries and to celebrate the Madrid Protocol that establishes Antarctica as a nature reserve dedicated to peace and science, the Embassy of France in Australia and the University of Monash have jointly established a research grant to support French-Australian collaborations in this field.
This research funding programme aims to support projects in all scientific fields related to the Antarctic and the Southern Ocean. The funding will be used to facilitate exchanges of researchers between Australia and France, as well as to support research and field work. Applications must be a joint project involving at least one organisation in Australia and one organisation in France
