Submit your research project proposals for the Transatlantic Research Partnership today.


The French Embassy in the United States and the FACE Foundation are pleased to announce the opening of the 2024 call for applications of the Transatlantic Research Partnership. 

This program aims to foster forward-looking collaborative research that engages with pressing global challenges. It offers $20,000 grants to support two-year projects led by two outstanding researchers at the beginning of their careers – one based in the United States, the other in France.  These funds will support transatlantic mobility of researchers and PhD students; collaborative research activities such as the organization of international workshops or conferences; and publication fees. 

Projects can span or combine humanities, social sciences, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), and research topics should be related to one or several United Nations Sustainable Goals.
