Objective

The French Institutes for Advanced Study Fellowship Programme proposes to strengthen scholarship and mobility in the Social Sciences and Humanities by enlarging and upgrading the offering of scientific residencies in France to international experienced researchers. It will provide SSH scholars worldwide the possibility to spend one academic year in four of France’s most innovative scientific regions. The four French Institutes for Advanced Study of Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier and Paris teamed up to propose a unified and simplified entry point to their much-coveted scientific residencies.

FIAS-FP will support individual research as fellows, released from teaching and academic commitments, will conduct in unsegmented time bottom-up research with the greatest freedom, with the IAS strong scientific and extra-academic support. The FIAS-FP experience is designed to provide fellows with the material and intellectual conditions that will generate a significant boost to their professional careers:
1. It enables fellows to produce in a short time what would have taken years to do in the fragmented time at their home institutions (because of administration and teaching commitments);
2. They get exposed to the collective benevolent intelligence of international and multidisciplinary cohorts of fellows, which brings their work to a higher, and often transdisciplinary level;
3. This new international and interdisciplinary network is an asset for scholarship and project building;
4. They are offered a vast range of training opportunities to improve their research and non-academic skills.
FIAS-FP is thus designed to foster intellectual exchanges amongst fellows and with the local scientific community, exposing them to innovative methods, opening new theoretical horizons, and creating international transdisciplinary networks among fellows and beyond.

FIAS-FP will offer 120 fellowships of 10-month to experienced SSH researchers over a 60-month period.
