Resources and cross-cutting themes

Ressources et thèmes transverses

As part of the quality approach implemented with the European HRS4R label, and to facilitate the participation of the site's teacher-researchers and researchers in European programs linked to research and innovation - in particular Horizon Europe - this page centralizes information and resources within the site to promote research and provide a better environment for the scientific community.

Gender equality and gender treatmentGender is a cross-cutting principle in all European projects. The strengthened gender equality provisions of Horizon Europe can be found at three different levels: eligibility, evaluation, and also as a ranking criterion for ex aequo proposals.Vice Presidency Gender Equality and Anti-Discrimination

Ethical assessment ensures that all research activities carried out under Horizon Europe comply with fundamental ethical principles.
Applicants are asked to carry out an Ethics Self-Assessment of the ethical issues potentially raised by the implementation of their project.
The Ethics Committee is a multi-disciplinary forum for discussion, providing support and advice to project leaders on their scientific approach.

Disseminating scientific culture and communicationThe scientific and technical culture unit is dedicated to sharing knowledge between science and society. It designs and develops a cultural program in which researchers from all disciplines are at the heart of the mediation process. It assists and supports research organizations in their initiatives to disseminate scientific culture, and offers training courses for researchers and doctoral students.Cellule de culture scientifique et technique

InterdisciplinarityAn approach at the heart of European policies, interdisciplinarity at AMU is reflected in the creation of institutional institutes and the implementation of an interdisciplinary mission. The latter aims to create synergies between transformative projects, experiment with facilitating and incentivizing practices, define milestones and evaluation tools, and share best practices within AMU and with our partners.Project Manager - Mission interdisciplinarité(s)

2. Our resources

The Mission Europe pour la Recherche (MER), a "one-stop shop" for all your European research and innovation program needs, brings together a team of around twenty people to support you in all aspects of your European projects:

  • Identifying funding opportunities, finding partners for your European project or identifying projects in the pipeline; finding a host laboratory as part of a Marie Sklodovska Curie project submission; submitting an ERC project hosted on the Aix Marseille site, etc. 
  • Benefit from support in setting up European projects - whether you are a partner or coordinator, facilitate negotiations and non-financial follow-up of your European projects


3. Training courses

You can also benefit from in-house training courses to facilitate your European initiatives. AMU has made skills development one of its key ambitions.
Doctoral students, researchers, teacher-researchers, technical and administrative staff can all benefit from a range of training courses offered by AMU and CIVIS Alliance partner institutions.
Finally, the "Talent Development School" project offers high-level, skills-based training programs that will enable every member of the community to meet the challenges of the future
