European Project Platform

 

Objective: assisting those who want to set up a European research project and/or academic program (network coordinators and/or collaborative project coordinators, ERC candidates, candidates for individual Marie Sklodowska-Curie scholarships).

To supplement the work of the European correspondents of partner institutions, IdEx Bordeaux offers several support tools for the preparation of the projects, put forward in coordination with partner institutions.

Access to these tools is reserved to coordinators of collaborative research/training projects, ERC applicants and candidates for individual Marie Sklodowska Curie scholarships. It is subject to the approval of the IdEx Bordeaux operating committee following the submission of a request sent via the European correspondent of the institution concerned.

The following is made available:

  • Access to consulting firms specialized in advisory services for the setup of projects
  • Assistance with proofreading (possibly in English) of the project proposal.

Along with these tools, IdEx Bordeaux has recruited two experienced European project officers, who provide assistance in addition to the support already offered by the institutions.

IdEx Bordeaux also provides operational and financial support to the CLAIRE network (Club Aquitain d’Information sur la Recherche Européenne) for its training, information, and awareness-raising initiatives.

Ce qu'il est important de dire à nos jeunes collègues, c’est de ne pas renoncer. Il faut répondre aux appels à projets, se former pour cela, se faire accompagner partous les services existants à l’université et sur le campus. Si on y croit, ils nous accompagnent à fond.

The support provided by the IdEX Grant Office as on previous occasions, has been instrumental to the success of the project. We are extremely grateful for the availability and highly relevant advice and support of Mrs. Andriamandroso on the items listed above, despite very short notice. This type of support is a key element to help researchers comply with European grant requirements and specific scopes and rules of each type of European call, and to understand and address questions related to ethics and PPI related aspects.

Un accompagnement d'ensemble pour le projet ULPEC (Ultra low power event-based camera)

Sylvain Saïghi, de l'équipe de bioélectronique du laboratoire de l'Intégration du matériau au système (IMS), coordonne le projet H2020 ULPEC qui vise à développer une caméra biomimétique événementielle connectée à un réseau de neurones artificiels. ULPEC, initié le 1er janvier 2017, associe huit partenaires, dont IBM et Bosch, qui vont travailler sur ce projet pendant quatre ans. Le budget total du projet est de 3,8 millions d'euros. Pour réussir cette aventure, Sylvain Saïghi a bénéficié de l’appui d’une chargée d’affaires Europe pour le décryptage de l’appel, le montage et l’écriture de la proposition, la coordination et l’animation du consortium, le montage du budget. Une fois le projet sélectionné, il a bénéficié des services de la cellule Europe : signature des documents officiels, rédaction et signature de l’accord de consortium avec l’aide d’Aquitaine science Transfert. Sylvain Saïghi est aujourd’hui épaulé par un project manager recruté à mi-temps pour assurer le management et la communication du projet. 

Valuable assistance for the BRIDGET project

The BRIDGET project (Brain imaging, cognition, dementia and future genomics: a trans-disciplinary approach to search for risk and protective factors in neurodegenerative diseases) seeks to explore the genetic and epigenetic determinants of quantitative MRI markers of brain aging, which are powerful predictors of dementia and the risk of Alzheimer's disease, and to examine the clinical significance of these markers in a given population. The objective is to establish an efficient strategy for the prevention of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Coordinated by Stéphanie Débette, this project called on the European project officers to respond to a call for proposals issued by the EU Joint Programme - Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JNPD) initiative. The European project officer thus provided assistance with the following: determining the relevance of the project with respect to the objectives of the call for proposals, preparing the submission, assessing the quality of the proposal, the impact and effectiveness of the implementation, and the critical review of the project. She also provided her expertise for the "ethical" aspect of the project and the part concerning Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in the JNPD. This...
