Call for projects

AVIESAN-INCa CALL FOR PROJECTS: Call_Systems_Biology_2017

AVIESAN-INCa Call for Research projects in the field of multidisciplinary approaches in modeling complex biological processes applied to cancer field (Systems biology)

Systems biology, as the term indicates, is a biology-based interdisciplinary field of study that focuses on the relation and interactions within biological systems (communication of cells at tissue and organ level, metabolism, network of genes and proteins in healthy and pathological conditions). The aim of this call is to propose a functional model at the cellular, tissue or organism level in healthy or pathological situation. The proposed model will be confirmed through experimental approaches using tools from experimental biology to clinical observation.
It is organized by ITMO Cancer of the French National Alliance for Health and Life Sciences (Aviesan) in collaboration with INCa (French National Cancer Institute). Inserm is entrusted with the operational management of this funding call.

The general objective of this call for proposals is to support multidisciplinary upstream research (mathematics, physics, chemistry, computers, biology, etc.), in order to make progress towards modelling of complex processes or integrative biology, in the field of cancer. It must in particular allow the development of multidisciplinary integrated teams that interact with clinicians, anatomopathologists and biologists in the field of cancer.

ONCOLILLE 2016 international Call for projects – deadline: 27th May 2016

This year, ONCOLille is funding a 100,000 euros project to promote international collaborations in cancer translational research in the Lille area.

The call for project will fund an ambitious international research project on a scientific question supported by ONCOLille research programs. This high value-added project will have to contribute to ONCOLille scientific excellence and visibility as well as attract new promising researchers in the Lille area.

The project must belong to the scientific themes developed within ONCOLille (tumor resistance to treatments, tumor dormancy, human and social sciences)

The project must:

  • Propose a translational research of high added-value with a short term impact on patient care in oncology
  • Propose a precise planning with clear objectives and deliverables (publications, patents…)
  • Reinforce high value collaborations (for example, by inviting a research from abroad or going abroad for trainings)
  • Attract new promising researchers in the Lille area

Call for projects FLAG-ERA 2016

We would like to point out the opening of the European program  FLAG-ERA Call for projects which deadline is fixed on the 31th of March 2016.

This program intends to answer some crucial scientific questions which will rise in the future and to fund long-term ambitious projects.

4 topics are included in the call:

  • ICT for Social Sciences (ICTSS),
  • High-Efficiency Sensor Networks (HESN),
  • Digital Medicine for Cancer (DMC),
  • Cooperative Robots (CR).

the third topics is supported bu the INCa.

Fundings follow the ERANET rules and are multi-national. this call is also intend for proof of concept projects.

teh Idea is to strucre the scientific community at the european scale, on research topics that have not been yet been funded through FET-Flagships calls.

Grant for international mobility- deadline: 23rd of March

CABRI: Commission d’Attribution Bourse Relations Internationales

Since 2014, the Université of Lille -Law and Health- has set up a grant system to promote inward or outward international mobility for research master students or PhD students.

The 2016 call for projetcs is now open to all partners of the University of Lille and toward excellence initiatives.


Master 2 : duration from 3 to 12 months
PhD : duration from 6 to 18 months

Excellence, coherence and scientific value of the project, as well as the personal contribution will be evaluated for the project selection

To apply, the project must include an international mobility aspect and be part of:

  • An already existing agreement between the partner university and the University of Lille,
  • A plan to develop partnership and scientific visibility If no agreement exists,

The mobility may concern master/thesis co-supervision as well as classic student exchange.

The next meeting of the CABRI commission is programmed on the 5th of April and the projects must be sent by email to the International Relation Service until the 23rd of March 2016.
