The France-Canada Research Fund (FCRF) acts to promote and develop Franco-Canadian scientific and academic exchanges of excellence in every field of research.

It is designed to support new collaborative scientific efforts involving young researchers.

The FCRF was created in 2000 through an agreement between the Embassy of France in Canada and a consortium of 16 Canadian Universities, both English and French speaking. 20 Universities are now part of the consortium, also the company Total.

The New Collaboration Program

This program provides financing for new scientific projects jointly developed by French and Canadian teams that have never worked together before.
The financing is awarded to two-year projects in amounts ranging from $8,000 to 15,000, according to the needs expressed by the principal investigators.

Open to all fields of research, the 2018 FCRF will fund 5 projects related to Low-Carbon among all projects selected.
