Various grant programmes are proposed to reinforce Tec21's objectives and activities

Short duration visitor grant program

intended to welcome foreign researchers for a significant duration (from 1 to 3 months) in order to achieve progress in the area of research as well as to prepare more ambitious projects with the Tec 21 research team.

Long duration visitor grant program

typically consisting of 2 or 3 months per year over three years, aimed at developing close collaboration and at achieving significant synergies as well as research results. Such a program will be preferentially associated with a PhD grant (to be jointly supervised by theforeign visitor and by local researchers) in order to ensure close collaboration with Tec 21 research teams. This programme is now over.

Chair grant program

established to attract prominent scientists, willing to invest both in research and in education. Stays will not be less than one full year, preferably three years in a row, in order to develop an educational project in parallel with research activities. For a 3 years chair, the associated research project will be sustained by 1 PhD and by 1 Post-Doc (again co-supervised by a researcher from Tec 21). This programme is now over.

Post-doc fellowship program

one year program, to sustain research projects. Candidates are invited to propose their own project in connection with one or more research teams belonging to Tec 21. Contact us to help you finding appropriate research partners.

PhD fellowship program

duration of 3 years, to develop research activities in collaboration with Tec 21's research teams. This programme is now over.
