Barrande Fellowship Programme


Barrande Fellowship Programme

The Embassy of France to the Czech Republic and the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MYES) coordinate the Barrande fellowship programme, the exchange mobility programme for Ph.D. students between the Czech Republic and France. The programme is designed to provide Ph.D. students in the Czech Republic with opportunities to study in France and Ph.D. students in France with opportunities to study in the Czech Republic. 

With all the scientific fields being represented, it enables Ph.D. students to acquire international expertise in humanities, life and natural sciences, exact sciences and engineering, economical and juridical sciences, medicine and others. While the call is open to all scientific fields, it particularly welcomes applications in the fields of environmental sciences, energy, mathematics and information technologies. 

The aim of the programme is to enhance international education exchange while encouraging scientific cooperation between French and Czech research teams. Czech and French students are encouraged to extend their research abroad and learn new skills they will be able to develop further in their home countries. They are to become the spearheads of French-Czech bilateral relations. In pursuit of this aim, the programme funds “cotutelles” and short-term research stays. 

The application should be prepared following the rules appearing in the Applicant’s guidelines for a cotutelle grant or the Applicant’s guidelines for a short stay. Students must apply by January 28th 2024. The link and details for online application are indicated in both Applicant’s guidelines.
