Merlion Project (Singapore | France)
The Merlion Project is part of the Merlion Program from the Franco-Singaporean Hubert Curien Partnership (PHC), co-funded in France by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) and in Singapore by National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU), Singapore Management University (SMU), Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).
The call is open to researchers and professors working in research organisations or higher education institutions in France or in Singapore. Each proposal must have a French coordinator and a Singaporean coordinator, whose affiliations should be clearly identified. The Merlion Project funds the travel to Singapore of researchers, PhD students or post-docs from France, as well as the travel of Singapore-based researchers, PhD students or post-docs to France. The financial support of a Merlion project is done in two ways:
1. Travel to Singapore for France-based researchers. The travel costs are borne by the French side and cover exclusively the allowances and travel expenses of the researchers in the French teams:
- Allowances: EUR 180/day, for a maximum of 10 days,
- Travel: reimbursement of the effective expenditure subject to a maximum of EUR 1400 per return trip.
2. Travel to France for Singapore-based researchers. The travel costs are borne by the Singaporean partners, according to the rules of each institution, the daily allowances will be given for a maximum of 10 days.
This is an annual program and the next applications close on September 4, 2023.
