Seed Meetings: Results of 2017 Call for Proposals

Following the latest call for proposals of the Funding for Seed Meetings Programme, which aims at facilitating exchanges and meetings between scientists of the UK and France and strengthening their position within the European Research Area (ERA), you will find here an overview of the selected proposals.


The five selected workshops fall in a variety of science subjects and are all multidisciplinary. They will take place in London from February to july 2017.

EuC1-Microbial C1 Metabolism (University of Strasbourg - University of East Anglia)

The objective of the proposal is to foster multidisciplinary collaboration between France and the United Kingdom focusing on Microbial C1 metabolism mechanism. The project focuses on to the establishment of a network-wide collaborative research activity to gain fundamental understanding and knowledge of microbial C1 metabolism, and to identify opportunities for future multidisciplinary projects.

EUREKA-European riparian ecosystems knowledge and management (University of Rennes 2 – King’s College University)

This meeting has the aim of regrouping the diverse and complementary competences from cross-Channel laboratories and strives to provide better understanding and gain knowledge in conversion regarding riparian vegetation, leading to restoration and sustainable management of ecosystem services which will benefit to water innovation projects.

• Personalized Molecular Imaging (University of Antilles, Guadeloupe – King’s College University)

The proposal aims at drafting a project to investigate a novel radiotracer production approaches and their application to clinical practice as a new way to enhance the availability of personalized molecular imaging.

• NEO-metropolitanisation in France and the United Kingdom-a comparative reflection on opportunities, challenges and prospects (University of Paris IV – University of Liverpool)

The project will aim to explore links and build synergies between researchers in France and the UK who are working on the emergence of new forms of metropolitan development and governance with a goal of developing researcher links and proofing concepts.

• Magnetoresistive structures under alternative to magnetic field excitations (Strasbourg Institute of Materials Physics and Chemistry – University of Sheffield)

The subject of Straintronics aims to provide low energy, high sensitivity devices for applications such as data storage, mass, field and strain sensors and actuators. The project will focus on the studies of magnetoresistives structures under alternative to magnetic field excitations
