ANR

Funding Agency and Programme Manager

 

The French National Research Agency (ANR) was established by the French government in 2005 to fund research projects, based on competitive schemes giving researchers the best opportunities to carry out their projects and paving the way for ground-breaking new knowledge.
The main mission of ANR is to fund the best basic research, but also targeted and applied research in particular through partnerships between companies and public sector laboratories. Its action is thus intended to support French research excellence at both academic and technological levels by means of a rigorous selection process based on evaluation by peer review. Finally, it is also the ANR's mission to strengthen international cooperation by contributing in particular to the funding of international consortia in partnership with other funding agencies in Europe and beyond.
