Scientific Challenges

The objective of the exploratory projects is to allow the emergence of innovative subjects and to reduce technological barriers, in the fields of the environment, energy and associated societal issues (E2S UPPA project).

Teams of 3 to 4 scientists are invited to propose innovative research, new or disruptive topics, to lift identified technological barriers, but also to promote interdisciplinarity and dissemination of information.

Seed Funding

The Seed Funding call for projects aims at promoting emerging industrial partnerships within the E2S UPPA consortium, by supporting intermediate scale projects (typically doctoral or post-doctoral projects), to favor initiative, risk taking and innovative research.

Breakthrough topics and new partnerships, over a short duration, are the core of this call for projects to promote dynamic research partnerships.
