LE STUDIUM MSH Val de Loire Visiting Researchers Programme
Closing Date: 04/04/2023
Funding is available to enable researchers outside of France to study topics within the humanities and social sciences at a research centre in the Centre-Val de Loire region of France.
The LE STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies is a French regional agency established in 1996. Its mission is to create a dynamic scientific community that includes public and private research stakeholders in the Centre-Val de Loire region of France.
The Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Val de Loire (MSH Val de Loire – Val de Loire House of Human Sciences) is a CNRS research unit overseen by CNRS, the University of Tours and the University of Orléans. MSH Val de Loire brings together humanities and social science laboratories in the Centre-Val de Loire region of France.
LE STUDIUM and MSH Val de Loire operate a visiting researchers programme. The objective of this programme is to welcome international scientists to MSH Val de Loire for research into one of the institution’s areas of interest:
- Cities and urban studies.
- Money, economy and finance.
- Environmental humanities.
- Transmission(s), transfer(s), re-appropriation(s).
- Human interaction and data science.
- Health in all its forms.
Through supporting the international mobility of applicants, the programme seeks to create sustainable collaborative links and projects between international researchers and regional laboratories in the humanities and social sciences from MSH Val de Loire.
The programme encourages researchers to pursue an interdisciplinary approach.
During the residency, visiting researchers will be fully integrated into their international research faculty, will be offered training opportunities, will be involved in scientific exchanges, networking activities and animation led by LE STUDIUM to support transdisciplinary exchanges and will be invited to international scientific events organised by LE STUDIUM.
