This program comes out of the programming committee work which specifies the scientific and technological priorities to be upheld by the IDEX, in line with the economic, societal and environmental issues in the field. The current program has identified four priority scientific areas.
Action thématique Stratégique aims to support multidisciplinary projects dealing with scientific issues that are associated with the blockages identified in socio-economic fields.
The aim of this program is to attract site research teams on whose work the ATS is yet to impact, but who can demonstrate the relevance of their projects with regard to the issues raised by the Call for Projects.
Requests for information about the
Actions thématiques Stratégiques program should be addressed to: ats univ-toulouse [dot] fr Priority subject areas for the 2015 call
The four programming committees worked to show up priority scientific subject areas in each field, taking into account the work they had done in autumn 2013 and the results of the call for projects campaigns in 2013 and 2014. The thematic developments of each ATS are therefore distinct and we urge you to consult the corresponding paragraphs carefully before preparing your proposals. The projects expected in this program are aimed at addressing scientific issues that are blocks to the development process of an innovation.
Program features Chairholding
This research program is thematic. It can be held by one person or by one team, without size limitation, belonging to one of the research facilities of the Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées Federal University (UFTMP) or the internal research unit of an organisation participating in the IDEX program.
The participation of outside teams is not excluded, but they cannot be beneficiaries of the IDEX funding.
The referring institution or organisation is the manager of the research facility to which the project holder belongs. This has to be an IDEX partner.
Once the project is submitted, the Director of the research unit and the Manager of the referring institution or organisation will be contacted by email to give their opinion of the file submitted.
This Call for Projects allows for funding
.  research projects : human resources (post-doc, PhD students, Master's/trainees), operating costs and small equipment costs, provided they are directly related to the project. research seminars oriented specifically towards ground-breaking strategies and intended to work exclusively on the forecasting connected with one of the subject areas of the AAP. In this case, the ATS will fund the invitation of scientists and leading authorities in their fields to participate in the seminar. An example of the type of format can be found at the Gordon Research Conferences website ( http://www.grc.org/). . Support services (project management, monitoring, control, management, etc.) are not eligible. Project duration
Typical project duration is 24 to 36 months.
