Conditions of eligibility

1) Nature of eligible projects

There are 2 categories of projects applying for funding :

  • They can be projects COMMISSIONED by the Minister of RSI in quality on major or urgent topical concerns
  • Or COMPETITIVE projects, ie subject to competition between several teams of researchers or innovators.

Each team develops its research or innovation project around a theme or a problem previously identified and launched in a call for projects. These themes or issues generally come from the Strategic Plan of FONRID, CNRST or stakeholders and users.

2) Terms and conditions

  • The project is in harmony with the chosen theme;
  • The project file is complete and respects the required standard framework,
  • Applicants accept the conditions of the competition (evaluation by the fund bodies).

3) Project evaluation process

Generally, after the launch of the call for projects (in local newspapers, posters, etc.), candidate teams submit a project concept note (PCN) of 4 pages maximum. The NCP is pre-assessed by experts and if it is accepted, the team is called upon to write the complete project (PC) and to attach all the documents required for a complete file. This file is then submitted to CST experts who assess it. If the CST's verdict is positive and validated by the Board, then the team is officially notified and proceeds to sign an agreement with FONRID to begin the implementation of its activities.
