The CIVIS Alliance Programme for International, Interdisciplinary, Intersectoral Research and Training for Experienced Researchers


CIVIS3i is an international programme open to Experienced researchers (ERs) from all around the world, developed in the context of the European University CIVIS. Aix-Marseille Université (France) has set up the programme which gathers the 8 universities of European University CIVIS and 24 non-academic partners. CIVIS3i aims to offer talented researchers an attractive environment for research, and train a future generation of employable, mobile, first-class researchers, able to conducted a high-level research - interdisciplinary and intersectoral - on five important global societal challenges: Health; Climate, Environment, Energy; Digital and Technological Transformation; Cities, Territories and mobilities; Society, Culture, Heritage. CIVIS3i will award 24-month postdoctoral fellowships to 32 Experienced Researchers (ERs), through two calls for applications open during the 50 months of the programme following an exemplary selection process following the key European principles set out in the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. CIVIS3i is rooted in the concept of a cross-border environment for research that offers a wide range of possibilities in terms of collaboration, whether international, interdisciplinary or intersectoral. The 32 research projects set up in CIVIS3i will meet requirements in terms of international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral dimensions and a mandatory three-month secondment to an academic or non-academic organisation. The participation of multiple non-academic partners to CIVIS3i will guarantee the intersectoral support to collaborative and innovative research projects with a bottom-up approach. A comprehensive training and networking programme is proposed by CIVIS3i to the fellows integrating interdisciplinarity and intersectorality in research, and skills to work in an international environment. CIVIS3i is also devoted to increase career perspectives of fellows by proposing tools and an ideal research environment.
