5- REVIEW OF THE APPLICATIONS

5-1 Eligibility criteria

This programme is intended to attract senior international researchers that are in possession of a doctoral degree and have at least five years of full time equivalent research experience.

To be eligible, applicant researchers must be national or long-term resident of a country other than France. Long-term residents are researchers who spent a period of full-time research activity of at least 5 consecutive (without breaks in research) years in a country other than France.

In addition, applicant researchers must also comply with the following mobility rule: applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, etc.) in France for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the deadline for submission of proposals. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.

5-2 Ethics

All research activities should respect fundamental ethics principles, including those reflected in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. These principles include the need to ensure the freedom of research and the need to protect the physical and moral integrity of individuals and the welfare of animals.

It is strongly recommended that all applicants refer to the following documents: Ethics issues table template: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/grants_manual/hi/ethics/ethics-eit_en.pdf

How to complete your ethics self-assessment:

http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/grants_manual/hi/ethics/h2020_hi_ethics-selfassess_en.pdf

5-2-1 Ethics procedure

Organisations that house the hosting laboratories (Universities, CNRS, INRA, INSERM, CEA, etc.) have ethics committee protocols with rules and codes of practice that are adhered to when reviewing studies involving ethics issues. Ethics committees include a cross disciplinary membership of scientists including anthropologists, philosophers ensuring the committee membership is able to consider research proposals in the appropriate context of the applicable ethics regulation. In addition, the expertise of the ethics committee members is consistent with the thematic of research under consideration.

The contractual agreements with region Centre-Val de Loire research organisations hosting LE STUDIUM fellows state that “professional activity is under the responsibility of the host laboratory/host scientist”. Consequently, LE STUDIUM requires that laboratories obtain and provide documentary evidence, of all necessary ethics approval for research projects.

Thus, if an application involves research on humans or animals, LE STUDIUM requires that the hosting laboratory provides a letter from the appropriate institutional ethics committee stating that ethics approval has been granted for the proposed research project before the expiry of the fellowship probationary period or before starting an experiment not explicitly proposed in the application.

For its own activities, LE STUDIUM Loire Valley IAS operates under its own Code of conduct and Ethics to which all employees and research fellows must abide. LE STUDIUM pays particular intention to the use of personal data collection and always requires a written authorisation before publishing information about a fellow or a research project.

5-2-3 Human research and Privacy

For proposals involving human subjects, the host scientist/host laboratory submits the research proposal to the Clinical Studies Ethics Committee, which approves clinical studies. This committee reviews the ethical issues in the research proposals. A copy of the ethics application and ethics approval is then sent to LE STUDIUM and filed with the research fellows’ personal documents.

LE STUDIUM applies the national French privacy regulations of “Centre National Informatique et Libertés” (www.CNIL.fr) regarding all personal data collections, utilisation and secure storage for research on humans.

5-2-4 Animal research

For proposals involving research on animals, the host scientist/host laboratory submits the research proposal to the region Centre-Val de Loire Animal Ethics Committee, which approves animal studies. This committee reviews the ethical issues in the research proposals. A copy of the ethics application and ethics approval is then sent to LE STUDIUM and filed with the fellows’ personal documents.

5-2-5 Monitoring ethical issues for the individual research projects

For studies involving human subjects and animals, the researcher must report any adverse events according to the host laboratory standard operating procedures and to LE STUDIUM. Any adverse events and action taken must be reported to LE STUDIUM as soon as possible. If necessary, the researcher must provide LE STUDIUM with the amended ethics approval document if adverse events require approved remedial action for the study to continue.

An ethics report will be provided by each researcher at the end of their fellowship in Centre-Val de Loire.

5-3 Evaluation criteria

Evaluators follow three categorical criteria to review applications, the scientific quality, significance and/or innovation of the proposed research and also take into consideration the presented experience, including achievements and awards within a diversified career path, of the applicant and host scientist/partners:

9- SCIENTIFIC ANIMATION: AN OPPORTUNITY FOR RESEARCH FELLOWS, REGIONAL RESEARCHERS AND LABORATORIES AND LE STUDIUM

All awards include scientific animation led by LE STUDIUM to provide interdisciplinary exchanges and establishment of new collaborations.

This scientific animation declines in different formats described hereafter. LE STUDIUM Fellows, their host scientists and the members of the host laboratories present in the region Centre-Val de Loire universities and research structures, public and private, are invited to attend these events.

9-1 LE STUDIUM CONFERENCE

Each research fellow has the opportunity to organise one international conference called LE STUDIUM CONFERENCE. These two-day international conferences are co-organised by the resident researchers, their host laboratories and LE STUDIUM, which is providing scientific and logistic support as well as partial financing.

The theme of these two or three day conferences is directly related to a fellow’s research topic. Fellows are asked to demonstrate their originality in design, bringing together complementary approaches generally not covered in conventional conferences, in order to develop new skills and adopt a differentiated position on a particular topic. The conferences involve up to 16 guest speakers with at least half being international invited speakers and about 40 additional attendees, including multinational attendees. Several hundred international researchers are welcomed each year in region Centre-Val de Loire (mainly in Orleans and Tours), to enrich the complementarities and interactions within LE STUDIUM network of fellows and host laboratories, creating international links, leading to career opportunities, for research fellows and including host laboratory research areas.

9-2 LE STUDIUM THURSDAY

LE STUDIUM animates the international community of researchers through regular monthly meetings called LE STUDIUM THURSDAYS. Each THURSDAY addresses a scientific topic of LE STUDIUM fellow’s research field. The challenge is that the speakers have to express themselves in such a way that the other fellows, whose specialties may be completely out of the field of the topic, should understand them. These meetings encourage interdisciplinary exchanges, with the goal of germinating original scientific projects among researchers. They help the fellows to deepen their communication skills within their discipline with other researchers and contribute to strengthen LE STUDIUM faculty of international research scholars. LE STUDIUM encourages its community of researchers to look to the "universal" scientific man, as spoken of during the Renaissance period, especially in the Loire Valley where attracting international "talent" prevailed and was typified by Leonardo de Vinci.

Regional political and/or scientific personalities are often invited to exchange with the LE STUDIUM RESEARCHERS to bring a better understanding of the attractiveness of the region Centre-Val de Loire.

THURDAYS are open to attendance of doctoral students.

9-3 LE STUDIUM WORKSHOPS

This format is variable and can involve one to four days of exchange and reflection with a common objective such as structuring research projects, discussing a line of research or transferring knowledge and technology.
