Technical Boost in Neuroscience 2021





NeuroMarseille institute wishes to promote scientific exchanges and encourage the emergence of collaborative projects within Marseille’s neuroscience community.

The institute constitutes a component of Aix-Marseille University (AMU) supported by AMIDEX funding. The use of funding is therefore governed by AMIDEX financial rules and subject to evaluation.

In this context, NeuroMarseille institute opens a call titled “Technical Boost in Neuroscience”, in order to encourage a new collaboration between one researcher/engineer and a technical platform (not belonging to the same laboratory/UMR). Only one application per team to this call is allowed.

Each project will be granted up to 10 k over a period of 12 months to cover the platform services.
