The Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs in partnership with the Ministry of Higher Education for Research and Innovation have launched a visiting fellowship program to welcome young researchers wishing to carry out their research in France as part of a “One Health” approach.

The “One Health” concept promotes an integrated, systemic approach to human, animal and ecosystem health at local, national and global scales. This approach provides a better understanding of the causes and consequences of the functioning and evolution of our societies, global environmental changes, including climate change and the erosion of biodiversity as well as the proliferation of emerging diseases. It thus helps to guide public policies on health prevention or innovation in a diverse economic and socio-cultural context. It also aims at taking a holistic view of health, environmental management and biodiversity pressures in order to better prevent and respond to emerging diseases at pandemic risk.

In fact, it is no longer possible to talk about human and animal health without taking into account the environment in which living beings evolve.

Candidate eligibility:

  • Must have obtained their PhD less than five years prior to the application, i.e. they must have defended their PhD between May 2016 and April 2021.
  • Should not have resided in France after September 1st 2020 (more than 90 days)
  • must not be French nationals.

Number of award under this call: 40 fellowships.

Deadline for application: May 3, 2021
