Call for projects: two successful « Creative France short programs »! [fr]
Launched as a pilot initiative in 2017, the « Creative France short programs » initiative was the subject of a first call for projects in 2018. This is aimed to support short programs, co-organised by French and Australian universities, on topics of interest shared by both countries.
The successful projects in 2018 are:
- European Campus Crossing Borders Short Term Program: Adding New Perspectives
University of Adelaide / Université de Strasbourg
Introduced under the framework of a strategic partnership between the two universities which was launched in 2012, this European program is aimed at increasing the mobility of Australian students toward France by giving them the opportunity to follow an academic interdisciplinary program in English, dedicated to European issues and to the theme of the sustainable city.
It will also open up the doors of the cross-border campus EUCOR to Adelaide students, in collaboration with the University of Friebourg.
- WASAA summer school
University of Adelaide / WASAA Group (Western Alliances for Scientific Activities with Australia)
This program reinforces the recently established collaboration between the University of Adelaide and the WASAA group (IMT Atlantique, Université de Bretagne Sud, Université de Bretagne Occidentale, Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Brest, ENSTA Bretagne, Ecole Navale).
Open to students of the University of Adelaide as well as those of the University of South Australia, also a partner of WASAA, the program will allow them to discover not only French culture and language but equally to work on strategic themes for the future Australian submarine construction project in Adelaide: artificial intelligence, human factors and robotics, with many industrial site visits on the program.
Each project will benefit from the label of “Creative France Short Program” and from funding to the amount of 2000€ from the Embassy.
