The A*MIDEX International Fund will allow for international research projects with a principle of co-funding with our foreign partners. These proposals are expected on collaborative research and publications, conferences and events bringing together scholars, students and practitioners (including partner companies). Projects with the ambition to create joint international units and international laboratories or open labs, especially in A*MIDEX priority scientific areas, will be favored.

Projects will be selected by calls for proposals with precise selection criteria and international standard evaluation process. The criteria will be defined by the A*MIDEX Steering Committee and include (i) the scientific potential of the project and its congruence with AMU strategy, (ii) the level of partners’ financial contributions (co-funding principle) and (iii) the strategic interest of the partners involved for A*MIDEX international strategy (cross-fertilization). Proposals will be evaluated by academic experts and a specific jury. The A*MIDEX Steering Committee will hold the final decision on the projects to be funded.

- Scientific potential of the project and relevance for AMU
