Following the call for projects launched before each campaign among researchers from public research organizations, the Polar Institute solicits the opinions and recommendations of an international and independent committee of scientific experts: the Council for Polar Science and Technology Programs (CPST), which is responsible for evaluating the scientific interest of the projects received. The projects, which can be multi-year (maximum 4 years and renewable annually), are also evaluated on their adequacy with the means that the Institute can implement in the field.
The Polar Institute only supports scientific projects from French public research organizations. The project leader must be a member of one of these organizations. Projects submitted by thesis students, post-docs, researchers or emeritus teachers are not eligible.
The submission of applications is done online in the spring, at the following address:
