End of the PHC Parrot 2017/2018 Selection Session
January 1, 2017 / December 31, 2018
The 8th session of selection for the Programme Hubert Curien Parrot (PHC Parrot) has been closed. Eight research projects led between french and estonian teams have been selected by a jury composed of specialists from both countries. Those eight projects are being awarded funding during the period 2017/2018 to allow partner teams to carry out mobility between France and Estonia.
Researchers and specialists involved in the PHC Parrot since its creation have been invited to a reception at the French Residence on December 12, in order to celebrate the closing of the 8th selection session, and more than 10 years of partnership in research between the two countries. The guests have been welcomed by the Ambassador of France in Estonia, Claudia Delmas-Scherer, the Councilor for Cultural Cooperation and Action, Anne Chounet-Cambas, and the scientific and academic attaché, Jordi Botella. Researchers were invited to share their opinions and experience on the program, and enjoy the specialties made on the occasion.
Mrs Delmas-Scherer seized the opportunity to congratulate the projects leader and the members of the Estonian selection committee for their work over the years, and highlighted the excellence of the teams involved in the program, both in France and Estonia.
Launched in 2003, the Parrot Programme has supported more than 50 projects in various fields such as medicine, biology, information technology and humanities. It is currently the fifth Hubert Curien partnership in terms of scientific quality of application.
