LMU-Bordeaux Research Cooperation Program

The LMU-Bordeaux Research Cooperation Program has been established to extend and deepen the collaboration between LMU Munich and Université de Bordeaux (UBx). The program is intended to support and promote innovative research across disciplines and foster the mobility of senior and young researcher from both universities.

The LMU-Bordeaux Research Cooperation Program provides funding for:

  • Research Mobilities to LMU and UBx
  • Joint Research Projects
  • Workshops/Conferences

The submitted projects should focus on strengthening the cooperation between LMU and UBx, with a strong potential for institutional impact.

Research mobilities aim to foster the exchange between researchers from LMU and UBx, typically between junior and senior researchers. They may be connected to a joint research project, but do not have to be. Nevertheless, there should be a clear scientific benefit of this exchange to both partners. They are intended for long research visits of more than 2 weeks.

For doctoral students from LMU:

  • Duration: up to 9 months
  • Funding: up to 500 euros per month for accommodation and daily allowance; up to 350 euros for travel

For postdoctoral researchers from LMU:

  • Duration: up to 9 months
  • Funding: up to 500 euros per month for accommodation and daily allowance; up to 350 euros for travel

For researchers (PIs) from LMU:

  • Duration: up to 1 month
  • Funding: up to 700 euros per week for mobilities of less than 2 weeks; up to 2.000 euros for mobilities longer than 2 weeks; up to 500 euros for travel

LMU and UBx researchers are invited to jointly submit research proposals for the development of collaborative research projects. Funding will mainly support short-term travels of less than 2 weeks and costs associated with the organization of research activities, as well as consumables.

  • Duration: Project activities should normally take place within a one-year period.
  • Funding: 7.500 euros maximum per project/per university (= 15.000 euros/project)

Collaborators from other institutions are welcome to participate in the projects but are not eligible for financial support from UBx and LMU.

LMU and UBx researchers are invited to jointly submit joint proposals for one or a series of workshops and/or conferences and to jointly publish their research results. Funding will mainly support travel and costs associated with the organization of research activities.

  • Duration: Project activities should normally take place within a one-year period.
  • Funding: 5.000 euros maximum per project/per university (=10.000 euros/project)

Collaborators from other institutions are welcome to participate in the workshop/conference but are not eligible for financial support from UBx and LMU.
