These are the calls for proposals for Researcher Project for the next application submission deadline 2 February 2022: 

Funding is intended to support scientific renewal and development in research that can help to advance the international research front. 

Funding is announced through four calls for proposals, where we want to reach scientists at different stages of their career, promote internationalisation and create groundbreaking research.

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.
