Research Exchanges 2020-2021

Closed call

The Arqus European University Alliance brings together the universities of Bergen, Granada, Graz, Leipzig, Lyon, Padova and Vilnius. The principal ambition of the Arqus Alliance is to act jointly as a laboratory for institutional learning from which to move forward in the design, testing and implementation of an innovative model for deep inter-university cooperation.


This call will support research stays at one of the Arqus partner universities by funding travel/stay expenses and providing opportunities for further intensified cooperation with the host university. In the context of doctoral training, this mobility programme can also be used for initiating collaboration with a doctoral co-advisor.

Grant applicants must be part of at least one of the following universities: Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3, Université Jean Monnet Saint-Étienne and École normale supérieure de Lyon (ENS).

  • Category 2 - Doctoral Candidates and Master Students: stays from 2 weeks to 3 months, funding (on a pro rata basis) = 1,200€ per month.
