It has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The call for applications is due to open in July 2021.

Increasing international attractiveness

Normandy region, situated in the North-West coast of France with 3.3 million inhabitants, is one of the most visited French regions. It is a very important and dynamic economic area for the country with its several sectors of excellence and innovation such as health, agri-food, energy, chemistry and automotive, naval and aeronautical construction.

The WINNINGNormandy Fellowship Programme will fund individual-driven research training and career opportunities for experienced researchers, who will design and implement their original research project in one of the Norman laboratories.
