The Centro de Neurociencias de Cuba, the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) and the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS) are launching the Short-term Research Missions Québec-Cuba Program 2019-2020. The objectives of this program are to promote international mobility between Quebec and Cuba and to foster sustained cooperation between researchers from Cuba and Quebec in specific research areas.
The following research areas are prioritized:
- Neuroimaging and brain mapping
- Cognitive neurosciences and neuropsychology
- Neuroinformatics and Neurotechnology
This program provides funds for carrying out scientific missions of Cuban researchers in Québec institutions, as well as for Canadian researchers in Cuba. Projects must be submitted separately and there should not necessarily be matched travels in both directions. Projects for Cubans visiting Quebec are received and processed in Cuba and visits by Canadians to Cuba are received and processed by the FRQS in Quebec (see information on the administrators of the program below).
For the Cuban researchers, the deadline for sending applications by email to the Program Manager is November 1st, 2019, 4:30 pm. Results will be announced on December 2019. The program rules can be downloaded from here. Interested applicants should fill the Application form (download it here) and send it by e-mail to the Program Manager.
The equivalent information for Quebec Researchers are available on the FRQS website. (http://www.frqs.gouv.qc.ca/en/bourses-et-subventions/concours-anterieurs/bourse/short-term-research-missions-bavaria-china-cuba-oinfcgl91559576161144).
