Proposals are invited for funding of up to £2500 for collaborative workshops between UCL academics, postdoctoral researchers or doctoral students and colleagues based in France, specifically focusing on research in arts, humanities or the social sciences, broadly conceived.

All workshops must be held at UCL before 31 July 2020.

Who is eligible?

UCL-based academics, postdoctoral researchers or doctoral students, with the support of a senior academic colleague, are invited to apply for funding to organise collaborative workshops for this call of the current UCL/ French Embassy collaborative agreement.

Proposals must include participants from UCL and from higher education institutions in France.

Applicants from previous calls may either reapply or submit new proposals.

As UCL has a dedicated programme supporting collaborations with institutions in Paris (UCL Cities Partnerships Programme, we particularly encourage applications in conjunction with partners from outside of the Paris region.


This component of UCL and the French Embassy’s longstanding partnership aims to encourage junior and senior scholars to establish new directions for possible research collaborations – not only in their own areas of expertise, but also across disciplines.

The initiative seeks both to build on existing links and to stimulate new ones between UCL and French academic and Higher Education organisations, such as French universities, Grandes Écoles and research organisations.


Up to £2,500 per workshop is available.

How to apply

Apply by 23:59 on 15 March 2020.

Proposals will be assessed by a selection panel, jointly chaired by the Pro-Vice-Provost (Europe) and the Higher Education Attaché of the French Embassy.
