DIM1HEALTH is based on three areas – environmental health, human health and animal health – whose close interactions make them inseparable from each other. The “One Health” concept came into being in a context characterized by climate change, worldwide demographic growth, scarcity of natural resources, and shifting health pressures in both human and animal populations.



We are pleased to inform you that the 1st “Paris Region Fellowship” call for projects led by the Ile de France Region, and which aims to recruit 26 post-docs for a period of 24 months has been published: https://www.iledefrance.fr/la-region-et-leurope-financent-52-contrats-de-recherche-post-doctorat

The Paris Region Fellowship Programme (ParisRegionFP) is an EU co-funded Marie Sklodowska Curie Action (MSCA) in the frame of European Commissions H2020 programme that will strengthen the research capacity and international influence of the Paris Region, in France. The two main challenges of the 5-year programme starting in January 2021 are to :

  • Recruit a total of 52 international leaders of all nationalities at post-doctoral positions in research and innovation, covering a large panel of disciplines
  • Provide intersectoral mobility, specifically created professional training and career development measures for these experienced researchers

The first call with a deadline in October, 21st, 2020 will recruit 26 researchers for 2-year post-doctoral fellowships. 

The researchers will design and implement their original research project in a first-class research group of their choice belonging preferably to one of the 13 “Domain of Major Interest” (DMI) labels endorsed by the Paris Region. The DMIs are key research sectors on which the Paris Region focuses policy support and investments to strengthen its international attractiveness and intersectoral mobility:

  • Mathematical science incl. interactions, data science
  • Computer science incl. security, communication, artificial intelligence
  • Astrophysics and conditions for the appearance of life incl. space observations, planets, exobiology
  • Porous solids science applied in renewable energy, environment, health
  • Air quality incl. environment, health, public policy
  • One Health incl. infectiology, vaccines,..
  • Life sciences incl. microfluidics, imaging, Big Data
  • Longevity and aging incl. geriatrics, gerontechnologies, social aspects
  • Gene therapy and genetics
  • Quantum technologies
  • Heritage and ancient materials
  • Digital humanities
  • Arabic and Islamic history, society, culture

ParisRegionFP will offer a novel international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral training programme for recruited researchers, covering scientific, academic and industrial topics in these identified key sectors (or DMI scientific themes) as well as hands-on knowledge in non-research oriented transferable skills.

The educational and research programme will be implemented by leading universities and 20 extra-academic partner organisations, covering actors from prestigious culture-related organisations and human resource actors to large industries and SMEs in various economic sectors. The scientific actors will ensure infrastructure capacity and high-level environment to conduct excellent research. Extra-academic partners will contribute to the implementation of ParisRegionFP by hosting experienced researchers during secondments or visits and/or by providing training, mentoring or career development opportunities.

Launch by SIMV of the “Ecoantibio SIMV 2020 RESEARCH PRIZE”

This Prize is intended to distinguish the research work published by a student or a researcher meeting the following criteria:

– Work highlighting the positive impact of vaccination

– Work highlighting the positive impact of other innovative therapeutic solutions (algae, peptides, probiotics, phages, etc.) in terms of reducing the risk of the emergence of antibiotic resistance and reducing the need to prescribe antibiotics . Only projects with a possible veterinary pharmaceutical industry exploitation are admissible.

Procedures for submitting requests in 2020:

The 2019 publications can be sent to the secretariat of the RFSA now and until September 30, 2020 at the following address: secretariat@rfsa.net
