Facts about Researcher Project for Scientific Renewal

This call for proposals is equivalent to what until 2019 was called a Researcher Project and was announced through a number of RCN programs and activities. The aim is to support scientific renewal and development in research that can help to advance the international research front. This call is therefore targeted towards researchers who have demonstrated the ability to conduct research of high scientific quality.
