Thematic research funding
The goal of the Genopole® Research Group Establishment Grants (ATIGE grants) is to offer to promising young staff researchers - tomorrow’s scientific leaders - the possibility of establishing and developing their own research group within a government research institute or a university lab located on the Evry-Corbeil biopark.
ATIGE grants are awarded for up to 3 years to researchers holding a permanent position in a government research institute or likely to obtain one before award of the grant.
The research project must fall within Genopole®’s strategic fields of interest:
genomics, postgenomics, biotherapies, bioinformatics, biophysics and the engineering sciences applied to large-scale biology (transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, systems biology, synthetic biology, etc.). _
ATIGE grant holders are selected by an independent scientific committee after an annual call for applications launched by Genopole®.
After project review and selection, funding of €76,500 per year (including costs and admin charges) is awarded, with the possibility of recruiting technical assistants on temporary contracts.
Since 2001, Genopole® has awarded twenty-three 3-year ATIGE grants (including one financed by the AFM). As of late 2011, eight were still running. Of the fifteen completed grants, 9 have been maintained in the host lab, 3 have prompted the establishment of a new research unit on the biopark and three have left the biopark.
