CNRS launches a call for proposals that aims at enabling independent and talented young scientists to create and lead an original project within a CNRS affiliated laboratory.

The call is open to young researchers, CNRS tenured or without permanent position, having defended their PhD (or equivalent doctoral degree) after 12/31/2010(1), whatever their nationality. 

Laureates of a similar funding are not eligible (e.g. ATIP program, ANR, ERC, Chaire d’excellence).

In 2019, the CNRS-Momentum program will support projects within the following emerging and transverse themes (see the full text of the Call) :

  • 1. Modeling the living
  • 2. Understanding complex networks
  • 3. Decrypting brain algorithms
  • 4. Applying data science to the Earth and the Universe
  • 5. Boosting sciences for sport
  • 6. Assessing the effects of low doses
  • 7. Studying phenomena at physical interfaces
  • 8. Meeting the challenges of machine learning
  • 9. Designing systems inspired by nature
  • 10. Showing the invisible
  • 11. Rethinking the urban ecosystem
  • 12. Revisiting the carbon cycle
  • 13. Exploring collective intelligence

The CNRS-Momentum funding is allocated for a period of 3 years, from January 1st, 2019. It includes :
