Every year, Paris-Est Sup Community of universities and establishments (COMUE) invites internationally renowned teacher-researchers and researchers living abroad. The purpose is one of the two following actions or both:
projects combining the two actions are eligible and will be favoured; in this case, the stay must last at least one month and avoid school holidays;
the stay takes place during 2021 and cannot be split up.
The inaugural lecture and the course may be delivered in French or English.
The two member universities of Paris-Est Sup (Université Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC) and Université Gustave Eiffel) also invite foreign teacher-researchers and researchers to support international scientific partnerships, as part of calls for applications launched by each of the universities at the end of 2020 or during the first semester 2021.
UPE allocates between fifteen and twenty lump-sum allowances based on the following provisions:
Personalities must meet the following criteria:
The application, drawn up in French or English using the attached form, includes:
Applications for 2021 must be sent electronically to the doctoral school concerned before 9 November 2019 midnight
The ranking of each doctoral school is transmitted to the Department of Doctoral Studies by 7 December 2019. On this basis, the allocation of grants is decided by the President of UPE on the proposal of the Doctoral Training Council meeting on 18 December 2019.
Once the list of personalities selected has been published and the beneficiaries have received written notifications, the Department of Doctoral Studies sends a message to their scientific correspondents specifying the procedure for paying allowances.
Six weeks prior to arrival, the guest should send a copy of their passport with/without visa and their bank details/IBAN to email@example.com. The application containing these documents is then sent to Campus-France, which pays the allowances by bank transfer or in cash upon confirmation of arrival in France.
Université Paris-Est hosts acc&ss Paris-Est, a EURAXESS service centre dedicated to mobility researchers. As a member of the regional network coordinated by the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris, this centre assists invited personalities in finding accommodation and in administrative procedures.
During their stay, the invited personality and, where applicable, their family are invited to evenings, French workshops, cultural outings, based on acc&ss Paris-Est current news.
