France And Chicago Collaborating in The Sciences (FACCTS)

France And Chicago Collaborating in The Sciences (FACCTS)* is a program designed to enhance science at the University of Chicago by encouraging closer relations between researchers in PSD, BSD, and IME and high-level research teams and institutions of higher education in France. It seeks to accomplish this goal by offering seed funding for new projects that promote meaningful academic and scientific exchange, and that show promise of leading to fruitful and sustainable collaboration. Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab, who are unaffiliated with PSD, BSD, and IME are eligible for FACCTS support, and are encouraged to apply.
