Launching of an international call in Computational Neuroscience

For the fourth consecutive year, ANR is joining NSF and NIH to issue a call for collaborative projects in computational neuroscience. The BMBF in Germany and the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF) are also participating in the initiative. The call is launched under the NSF “Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience” CRCNS programme. The deadline for applications is 29 October 2015.

Computational neuroscience provides a theoretical foundation and a rich set of technical approaches for understanding complex neurobiological systems, building on the theory, methods, and findings of computer science, neuroscience, and numerous other disciplines.

Through the CRCNS programme, the French National Research Agency (ANR) is joining  the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), and the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF) to support collaborative activities that will advance the understanding of nervous system structure and function, mechanisms underlying nervous system disorders, and computational strategies used by the nervous system.

Two types of proposals will be considered: research proposals describing collaborative research projects, and data sharing proposals to enable sharing of data and other resources.

Only transnational projects will be considered by ANR: project consortia must include at least one French partner and one US partner. Consortia involving French, American, Israeli and/or German partners will also be considered.

NSF will coordinate and manage the review of proposals jointly with ANR and other participating funding organisations, through a joint panel review process used by all participating funders. Each agency will fund its national teams according to its own national rules.

The deadline to submit applications to NSF is 29 October 2015.
