    Seed funding programme

    To further our goal and to foster interdisciplinary research, the Board of Affiliates of the ISCD is pleased to announce a call for proposals “Support to research at the interfaces“. Aimed at advancing research that combines computing and/or data science expertise with domain expertise, this funding is intended to

    We are particularly drawn to sustain projects that will enable faculty teams to develop successful proposals for large scale grants. We will look for applications that propose unique and novel approaches to bring scholars together to work on projects that cross traditional discipline boundaries.

    The affiliates and associated faculty are eligible to request funds to support:

    • invitations or short stays of high-level scientists in one of the SU laboratories;
    • doctoral contracts for co-directed theses (possibly including missions);
    • post-doctoral awards of 12 or 24 months (possibly including missions);
    • fixed-term contract for an expert engineer;
    • the organization of events (conferences, seminars, workshops, schools, specialized courses).

    Co-financing (ANR, European contracts, …) is strongly encouraged. The researchers are invited to study the possibility of co-financing the salaries of doctoral students and post-doctoral students recruited on ISCD credits.

    Support the actions of incubated projects

    Affiliates and associate members of the institute’s team projects are eligible for funding, if it is intended to support actions within the scientific scope of the project, as defined by its scientific leader. These requests have priority over requests from researchers or professors at Sorbonne Université who do not belong to ISCD team projects.

    Creation of junior teams

    To be announced early 2019.

    Support incentive actions

    Funding can be requested for innovative multidisciplinary studies in the field of intensive computing, data analysis, AI, scientific visualization outside the thematic axes of the project teams, in a percentage that will not exceed 20% of the annual budget of the ISCD. For applications outside the team projects, the research-training link will be favored and training actions are strongly encouraged, especially if they rely on collaborative dissemination tools (E-learning, MOOC).
