from March 1, 2022 to November 1, 2022

This call is permanently open during the year 

The Neuromod Institute established a permanent call for small interdisciplinary projects combining 1/ Neuroscience-cognition and 2/ Modeling (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics etc). A few thousand euros can be awarded per project.

What is it?

The call should typically help to finance:

  • Invitations - guests (seminars / collaborations).
  • Conferences and other workshops.
  • Equipment (only to supplement another grant).
  • Internships, engineers (a few months) and other human ressources (e.g. indemnities for annotations, cognitive experiments, etc).
  • Part of travel expenses, if detailed justification is provided.

Who can apply?

Any researcher or project team based at Université Côte d'Azur can apply.


How does it work?

Fill out the application form (precise budget and quotations are encouraged) and send it to

Applications will be evaluated by the scientific council of NeuroMod, which will seek external expertise if needed. Evaluation criteria are based on:
  • Scientific excellence
  • Real interdisciplinarity.
Funds will be allocated quickly and must be spent within the year.

In case of publications,you must acknowledge the funding source as such:

"This work was supported by the French government through the UCAJEDI project managed by the National Research Agency (ANR-15- IDEX-01) and, in particular, by the interdisciplinary Institute for Modeling in Neuroscience and Cognition (NeuroMod) of Université Côte d’Azur".

Participation of the project leaders in the life of the NeuroMod Institute will be expected (participation at the yearly conference for instance and eventually presentation of scientific results).
