By assisting research partners in establishing sustainable cooperation, the French government aims at facilitating the integration of South African think tanks into French, European and francophone African scientific networks.

The 2010 edition of the programme has allowed several South African senior researchers to conduct joint projects with research institutes based in France. In view of the interest expressed in the programme by partner institutions, the French government is pleased to open applications for 2011.
The French government is offering five fellowships allowing successful applicants to undertake a joint research project of a duration of up to ten weeks in collaboration with a French research institute. Fellowships include a 2000€ monthly allowance, a roundtrip airflight ticket, visa fees and full medical and social insurance.
