ANR, NSF (National Science Foundation) and NIH (National Institutes of Health) in the United States launch a 3rd call for French-US research projects in computational neuroscience. This year, Data Sharing projects will also be considered.

For this purpose, the program "Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience" of NSF and NIH, as described in NSF Solicitation 14-504, is open to French participants.

Computational neuroscience is inclusively defined, encompassing a broad range of computational and biological goals and approaches.

French-US collaborations (at least one French partner and one US partner) are expected to exploit complementary expertises, enabling the collaborating investigators to pursue innovative research approaches and make significant advances on important and challenging problems.

The proposals will be evaluated according to NSF evaluation procedures in coordination with ANR.

The US partners will be funded by NSF and NIH and the French partners by ANR.
