French Opportunities - Closing 31 Jan!
The Nicolas Baudin “Internship in France” initiative offers students from participating Australian universities the opportunity to undertake a research internship at a French host university in collaboration with an industry partner.
The internship offers are jointly created by the French host university and its industry partner, and when relevant with the Australian partner university if the intern is enrolled within the framework of a pre-existing scientific collaboration.
The Laureates programs in France are co-financed by the Embassy, the hosting university in France and the home university in Australia.
The call for internship topics is now open until 31 January, 2019. The French institutions will propose their topics after discussion with their industry partners. However it is highly recommended that the Australian universities are part of this conversation from the beginning. The most successful projects so far took place as part of a pre-existing collaboration between a French and an Australian uni. Therefore we encourage you to contact your French partners, mention the program to them and see how it can be used to nurture your partnerships.
The Creative France short program
The Embassy of France in Australia is supporting the establishment of short-term programs in the form of summer (or winter) schools co-organised by French and Australian tertiary education institutions, and bringing together students from both countries around a theme of common interest.
The selected project benefits from the Creative France Australia label as well as financial support from the embassy up to 4000 € (approx. 6300 $ AU, subject to current exchange rate) to contribute toward the organisation costs of the school.
Embassy funding is awarded to the Australian university participating in the project.
The deadline for application in 31 January, 2019.
