Here find more information about Risky, Passport or Mobility projects funded by the LAPHIA Call for Projects!

What is a Risky Project?

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 scientific challenges but also with high possible pay-off.

These projects will be considered as start-up seeds for more ambitious research projects that could 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 (12 months postdoc or engineer) or/and to environment fees (consumables, small equipment) and/or equipment according to the specific requirements of the project proposed. For more details regarding the eligibility of the expenses, please refer to the part “4.5. Expenditures” in the LAPHIA Call for Projects document (link).

A risky project should last 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.


What is a Passport Project?

Passport project (PP) are dedicated to the validation of an original idea before launching a patent or a large industrial project. This kind of 1 year project can reduce the overall cost for PI and guarantee a large success for the transfer of knowledge. We recommend at least having one company that vouch for market existence of the targeted product technology developed within the passport project.

PP budgets can be devoted to human potential (12 months postdoc or engineer) or/and to environment fees (consumables, small equipment) and equipment according to the specific requirements of the project proposed. For more details regarding the eligibility of the expenses, please refer to the part “4.5. Expenditures” in the LAPHIA Call for Projects document (link).

A passport project should last 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.


What is a research Mobility Project?

One of the LAPHIA long-term objectives is to implement an ambitious international policy, with mobility actions directed both to students, faculties and the researchers. In this research call, mobility for researchers can be funded. These grants are meant to facilitate international exchanges between researchers from LAPHIA and international researchers in foreign universities. This tool should enhance the international visibility of LAPHIA and the Université de Bordeaux as a whole.

Researchers, post-doc fellows as well as PhD students will be welcome to apply.

The budget is mainly devoted to mobility support for a LAPHIA researcher in a first-class host laboratory and for workshop organization. Environment fees (consumables) are also eligible. Equipment for experimental setup can also be exceptionally funded if this is mandatory for the project realization.

A research mobility project could last 2 years. 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.
