Call for Impulsion proposals : outcome of the 2018 edition

On The December 5, 2017

As part of IDEXLYON, 21 applicants were selected from the call for IMPULSION projects, with a total funding of 1.3 million euros.

To enhance the attractiveness of the Université de Lyon, IDEXLYON launched the 2018 call for proposals IMPULSION in July 2017. For this third edition, around thirty faculty members and researchers have been pre-selected by the Université de Lyon's member institutions from around one hundred applicants.

Following a review of the applications by the IDEXLYON Academic Group (made up of Vice Presidents of Research and Training and representatives of research organizations ), the IDEXLYON Executive Committee (EXCOM) chose 21 applicants on the 24 November. Each project will be funded for ten years, for an average total of 62,000 euros which will support research and training projects for researchers and faculty members who have recently arrived at the Lyon Saint-Étienne institutions. The winners of the third edition have completed their university careers at world-class universities, such as Princeton University, the University of Montréal or even Oxford and Cambridge Universities in the UK.

This initiative will be funded with 1.3 million euros by IDEXLYON.
