Objective

Led by REGION BRETAGNE, the BIENVENÜE Programme is an innovative fellowship programme offering 75 two-year postdoc positions to highly-skilled researchers to work in the thriving and internationally esteemed environment that is France’s Brittany Region.
The BIENVENÜE Programme is designed as a building block of the proactive regional initiative to develop a knowledge-driven economy with international recognition and a local identity. It will reinforce the human capital of the region in R&I and maximise impact on the RIS3 implementation by heightening research excellence, cross-sectoral innovation, and collaboration between academic, non-academic and policy makers, thus stimulating regional development.
To achieve these objectives, the programme BIENVENÜE is proposing attractive conditions for self-built, bottom-up postdoctoral projects in all scientific fields, to be hosted in 8 highly active research institutions (universities and research centres). To ensure a large diversity of profile and an increase pool of future scientific leader for the region, the project selection will be made through merit-based, fair, international and transparent procedures. Then, BIENVENÜE focuses on enhancing researchers’ career development opportunities in line with MSCA principles. In addition, cooperation with key innovative industrial players and other non-academic partners (public bodies, NGOs, etc.), with international or interdisciplinary partners – through intersectoral secondments and training events – will provide opportunities for postdoctoral fellows to acquire transferable skills and to explore new career opportunities in private or public settings.
