International project for scientific cooperation (PICS)
A PICS is a scientific project jointly developed and proposed by two research teams, one belonging to a foreign-based research institution, the other to CNRS. The two teams must already have collaborated on one or more co-authored publications. The grant is intended to finance “extra international expenses” encountered by the project such as research trips, meeting administration, operational costs and equipment on a small scale.

Duration: The project is financed by the two partner organizations for three years.
Deadline: March 31, 2006.;view
