5 new projects funded by the Dumont D’Urville Programme in 2018
Each year, the Dumont d’Urville programme helps to enhance the mobility of researchers between France and New Zealand as well as to develop excellence science and technology exchanges between research laboratories. Since its creation in 2005, more than sixty projects have benefited from it. Five new projects have been selected for 2018-2019.
Each year, the Dumont d’Urville programme helps to enhance the mobility of researchers between France and New Zealand. Created in November 2005, this programme is co-financed by France and New Zealand ministries. It aims to develop excellence science and technology exchanges between research laboratories, either private or public, by fostering new partnerships. Since its creation, more than sixty projects have benefited from it. Five new projects have been selected for 2018-2019 and will thus allow researchers to travel between the two countries (see table below).
