The funding allocated is exclusively intended to finance the "international extra cost" of the projects, i.e. the mobility of researchers involved in these partnerships.
General selection criteria: in addition to scientific excellence, the main assessment criteria are as follows:
the competence of the French team to carry out the project, the quality of the French infrastructure, the new nature of the cooperation, the need for the French team to work with the prospective foreign partner, the complementarity of the teams, the mutual transfer of skills, the foreseeable scientific or industrial spin-offs AND the participation of doctoral students and/or young scientists (postdoc) in the mobility.
