Australia-France Network of Doctoral Excellence

Description du projet

Un programme de formation doctorale stimule les relations franco-australiennes dans le domaine de la recherche

Le renforcement des liens universitaires franco-australiens représente un axe majeur du projet AUFRANDE, relevant des Actions Marie Skłodowska-Curie. AUFRANDE entend renforcer les liens entre les deux pays par le biais de 64 postes de formation doctorale, impliquant 22 partenaires français et 15 universités australiennes. Les chercheurs doctorants pourront acquérir de nombreuses compétences et expériences intersectorielles, et nouer des relations qui s’avèreront utiles au fil de leur carrière de chercheur, dans des domaines tels que la photonique, les nanotechnologies, l’acoustique et l’énergie. Les participants seront encadrés par des universitaires et des industriels, et bénéficieront d’un soutien lors d’événements de groupe et d’autres rencontres. Ils seront employés par des institutions de recherche françaises et passeront jusqu’à 12 mois en détachement en Australie.

Objectif

AUFRANDE is a highly ambitious 15.6M€ interdisciplinary doctoral training program linking France and Australia through 64 unique doctoral training positions. Led by RMIT Europe with participation of 22 French and 15 Australian academic partners and supported by over 40 non-academic partners, AUFRANDE aims to create a critical mass of collaborative doctoral training agreements between multiple institutions across France and Australia, reinforced with regular events where Candidates and Supervisors come together, share common experiences and build a sustainable community. The many legal and procedural elements developed to link the French and Australian research ecosystems during AUFRANDE implementation will lay a strong foundation for long-term impact on future collaborations and careers.
To ensure that AUFRANDE attracts top talent globally, all Candidates will:
- dual-enrol, earning doctoral degrees from both France and Australia,
- be employed in France on attractive salaries with full social security benefits,
- able to extend contracts up to 3.5 years, giving ample time to complete secondments, research and training activities,
- spend up to 12 months on secondment in Australia, with generous 10,000€ travel allowance.
Additionally:
- Each position will be advertised with at least three topics to choose from, proposed bottom-up by Supervisors across all disciplines.
- All research projects will have the direct involvement of a non-academic partner, ensuring inter-sectoral experiences and societal relevance of the research,
- Training schools will be held regularly at multiple locations across France and Australia, bringing Candidates and Supervisor together to learn and network.
- Dissemination will aim to attract female, at-risk and widening countries applicants,
- Best practises in international co-supervision and doctoral training will be documented and shared with the international community.
