Risky projects - LAPHIA - AAP 2016

The risky projects (RP) are small projects with a reduced staff and lasting 1 year. The main idea is to promote potential new breakthrough ideas, with high risk but also high possible pay-off.

These projects will be envisaged as start-up fundings for more ambitious research projects, possibly to be submitted either to the LAPHIA Call for large collaborative research projects and/or national or international funding calls.

RP budgets can be devoted to human potential (1 Post doc or 1 engineer of 12 months[1]) or/and to environment fees (consumables, small equipment[2]) and/or equipment[3] according to the specific requirements of the project proposed. For more details regarding the eligibility of the expenses, please refer to the part “4.4.Expenditures”.

A risky project is for one year.  However, the project can be extended; a letter has to be sent to the Direction of LAPHIA (dir.laphia@u-bordeaux.fr) by the coordinator of the project. The reasons of the extension have to be clearly presented.


[1] Post doc salary or engineer salary: 50 000 euros maximum per year.

[2] Small equipment: < 4000 euros excl.tax.

[3] Equipment: > 4000 euros excl. tax.
