2019 marks the 13th year of the annual call for projects for the Merlion Programme. Close to 200 bilateral collaboration projects have been funded since the Programme’s inception.
The PHC Merlion Programme is a Franco-Singaporean collaboration, managed by the Department for Culture, Education and Science of the French Embassy in Singapore, in partnership with Singaporean institutions. The objective of the programme is to develop scientific and technological exchanges of excellence between the laboratories of the two countries, by encouraging new cooperation and the participation of young researchers and PhD students.
The Merlion Programme takes three forms:
Merlion Project: Funding of missions between France and Singapore for researchers, post-doctoral and doctoral students involved in a joint research project.
Up to €30,000 over two years
Merlion Workshop: The workshop is to be jointly organised by both partners, the French and Singapore institutions. The aim is to lead to an eventual bilateral research agreement post workshop. The workshops could be held in either France or Singapore.
Up to €20,000
