Visiting Researchers Program

How to spend or organize a short study visit within one of our labs?

The Academy Networks, Information, and Digital Society operates a Visiting Professors scheme to allow academics, researchers and practitioners to spend a period of time conducting research within one of the Academy's labs on the SophiaTech Campus. These visits aim at livening up the scientific activity of the research teams, contributing to the international outreach of DS4H and facilitating collaborations with foreign partners. 

General Guidelines
  • Visiting Fellows may start at any time during the year, subject to agreement by the hosting laboratory. The applications must be approved by the coordination unit of the Academy Scientific Council.
  • The length of a visit would normally be between 15 days and one month, although requests for longer visits may be considered. Requests for shorter visits (less than 2 weeks) will not be considered.
  • The invitation of a PhD studying on the 3rd year may be considered but the priority is given to the invitation of a professor/ researcher.
  • Financial support may be provided for travel and accommodation, but may not exceed 2500 € / month (1500 €/month for a PhD).
  • The Academy is able to make arrangements for living accommodation for your visitors via support of the Université Côte d'Azur Welcome Center.
Application Process

In order your request will be eligible, prospective host laboratory may provide:
 

  • a short text indicating the subject of the joint research, and the importance of the collaboration with the host team;
  • a CV with the list of publications or a web page of the guest professor;

  • details on the budget requested.
