Barrande Fellowship Programme
The Embassy of France to the Czech Republic and the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MYES) coordinate the Barrande fellowship programme, the exchange mobility programme for Ph.D. students between the Czech Republic and France. The programme is designed to provide Ph.D. students in the Czech Republic with opportunities to study in France and Ph.D. students in France with opportunities to study in the Czech Republic.
With all the scientific fields being represented, it enables Ph.D. students to acquire international expertise in humanities, life and natural sciences, exact sciences and engineering, economical and juridical sciences, medicine and others. While the call is open to all scientific fields, it particularly welcomes applications in the fields of environmental sciences, energy, mathematics and information technologies.
The aim of the programme is to enhance international education exchange while encouraging scientific cooperation between French and Czech research teams. Czech and French students are encouraged to extend their research abroad and learn new skills they will be able to develop further in their home countries. They are to become the spearheads of French-Czech bilateral relations. In pursuit of this aim, the programme funds “cotutelles” and short-term research stays.
In 2024, the application deadline is January 28th.
Two information webinars (mandatory registration), jointly hosted by the French Embassy in the Czech Republic and by the DZS, will take place on:
- 2023, Nov. 9th from 11:00am to 12:00pm, for students and academics from the Czech Republic
- 2022, Nov. 9th from 4:00pm to 5:00pm, for students and academics from France
