This hosting programme is dedicated to senior researchers from abroad, whose research project is related, in a transversal and innovative way, to the three action areas of the Montpellier Advanced Knowledge Institute on Transitions (MAK’IT) – agriculture & food, environment, health – and contributes to its mission to analyse, accompany and accelerate transitions towards sustainable development. The selected fellows are invited for a 3 to 12 month residency in a research structure of the Montpellier University of Excellence (MUSE) consortium of their choice.
Co-funded by MAK’IT and the host research structure, this programme offers these fellows a privileged working environment for nurturing their ideas and creativity in a decompartementalised way within a world-renown scientific community. MAK’IT organizes regular exchanges among fellow residents who are pushed to foster innovative interdisciplinary approaches, breaking with academic routines and geared toward the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). MAK’IT fellows are also strongly encouraged and actively supported in their efforts to create new connections and develop concrete collaborations with Montpellier’s scientific community.
Disciplines: all disciplines, in life and engineering sciences or SHS.
Research project: candidates’ research project must contribute, in a transversal way, to MAK’IT’s three main fields of action: agriculture & food, environment and health.
