BIOSANTEXC, winner of the French-Indian Campus call for projects

The BIOSANTEXC project has been selected in the framework of the call for projects for the creation of a Franco-Indian Campus launched by Campus France. It aims to build a network of excellence and promote cooperation for training and research in the field of health sciences.

A Franco-Indian project

The BIOSANTEXC project is a Franco-Indian campus in health sciences. Led by ENS de Lyon and IISER Pune, it is composed of the four Écoles normales supérieures, six Indian Institutes of Science, Education and Research and four Indian research institutes.

This project is one of the four winners of the Franco-Indian Campus call for projects launched by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, in partnership with the Ministry of Higher Education and Research.

Complementarities and interdisciplinarity

A first phase of funding for a period of two years is planned, with the objective of developing scientific cooperation and joint training at the Master's and Doctorate levels within a Franco-Indian network of excellence. This network will promote interdisciplinarity and complementarities between researchers and PhD students in training and research.

Four main axes

  • Create a sustainable ecosystem in which research and training are linked and feed off each other.
  • Set up "twinning programs" in the framework of cross-mobility at the Master's level.
  • Develop scientific collaborations and co-directions and co-supervision through research stays at the doctoral and research levels.
  • To strengthen the Franco-Indian links in a sustainable way by training specialists with Franco-Indian intercultural competence.
  • To gain visibility and extend the BIOSANTEXC network to other countries and partners in the Indo-Pacific region.

Implementation of the first programs

A first campaign of internships in France and India is offered to students of the network's institutions. This campaign will be followed by a mobility program for researchers and teacher-researchers, and then a doctoral mobility program.

A BIOSANTEXC web space will soon bring together the news of the actions implemented, the calls for projects and the possibilities of mobilities within the network.
