Grenoble-Alpes University received around 50 expressions of interest in response to its call for proposals for the IDEX (a French government program to boost cross-disciplinary programs on campuses across the nation) Cross-Disciplinary Program (CDP). In June and July, the university held three days of meetings with leaders of potential projects targeting all of the IDEX CDP disciplines. The projects selected will receive substantial funding (up to €2 million per project over four years).
To ensure the quality of the future CDP, the IDEX set up a panel of international experts to select the projects eligible for funding. The second wave of the call for proposals will take place in 2017. In all, around a dozen projects will be selected from the two waves of applications.
