TANDEM Program

The French Research Center in Humanities and Social Sciences in Prague (CEFRES, USR CNRS 3138), CNRS, and the Czech Academy of Sciences (AV ČR) has created an incubator program “TANDEM”. This program of the CEFRES Platform endeavors to excellency in social sciences and humanities.

The aim of the TANDEM program is to associate two researchers, one from the AV ČR, one from the CNRS (French National Research Center), around a joint research project leading to the submission of an ERC project (Synergy grant, but also Starting, Consolidator, or Advanced grant).

The researcher from CNRS will benefit from a 7 month-long research stay at CEFRES (so-called SMI – “Soutien à mobilité internationale” program) from February to August 2020, and then from an appointment at CEFRES (so-called “affectation” program supported by CNRS).

The AV ČR researcher of the team in the TANDEM program will be appointed for 50% of her/his work time at CEFRES is funded by AV ČR.

The TANDEM team may also recruit a post-doctoral researcher co-funded by CEFRES and the Charles University (UK).

The next TANDEM team will be selected in 2021 and start working in 2022.

Feel free to send any inquiries related to your TANDEM application, especially to find your research partner, to the following coordinators:
