As an Institute of Advanced Studies, the purpose of the Collegium de Lyon is to create a scientific community of excellence, focused mainly on humanities and social sciences but without excluding exact sciences, especially in the case of transversal topics with an innovating point of view.
The Collegium is open to all applications and looks forward to receiving individual, original and high-level projects from a wide range of field of studies, research focus and societal questions.
Two criteria are considered in priority when selecting the projects:
scientific excellence, especially the innovative aspect of the project, which is expected to bring significant progress in the knowledge about a specific topic
a relevant connection with the research potential of the academic site of Lyon-Saint-Etienne (see the overview of the research in the Univerité de Lyon) and the intention to developp active links with the labs
Projects on specific themes of research
