Other funding opportunities, ANR partnerships and co-funding

By virtue of its mission as a project-based research funder, ANR establishes partnerships with other funders (“Partnerships and Cofunding” document) including:

  • The National Solidarity Fund for Autonomy (CNSA),
  • the Ministry of Defence (Defence Procurement Agency - DGA),
  • The Ministry of Health (General Directorate for Care Provision, DGOS)
  • The Ministry of Food, Agriculture, and Forests (MAAF),
  • General Secretariat for Defence and National Security (SGDSN),

These particularly valuable partnerships provide research funding and co-funding opportunities that complement the ANR’s own operating budget, for either the generic call for proposals or specific calls for proposals. One example is the Astrid and Astrid Maturation programmes, implemented by ANR and funded by the DGA.

Complementary funding through the Ministry of the Environment, Energy and the Sea (MEEM) may also be granted in addition to said partnerships.

Other public institutions also provide funding for project based research and launch their own calls for proposals, e.g. the National Cancer Institute (Inca) and the National Agency for Research on HIV and Hepatitis A (ANRS). Such proposals and related projects are not supported by the French National Research Agency. The eligibility of projects submitted to ANR will therefore, irrespective of WP 2017 calls for proposals and falling within topics likely to receive funding by these organisations, be jointly decided upon by ANR alongside said bodies.
