This research funding program will support and reinforce social science collaboration between Australia and France through:
• Research activities on a topic of interest to both Australia and France, provided to eligible French and Australian researchers, especially early and mid-career researchers.
• Research activities relevant to Pacific Island Studies (including those in French overseas territories).
• Research activities with the capacity to support the development of strategic alliances between France and Australia.
This programme is the partnership benchmark which France seeks to establish to support the initiation of collaborations, since it offers a joint support simplifying the setting up of projects, and a joint evaluation to share the strategic priorities of the two countries.

This program was launched on 9th of September, at the Residence de France with the Ambassador of France to Australia and distinguished guests from the Australian Academies, the federal government (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trades, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, Department of Education and Training), the Universities (Universities Australia, Group of 8, Australian National University), the Australian Research Council, and associations…
