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 related to research and innovation - in particular Horizon Europe - this page centralizes information and resources within AMU to promote research and provide a better environment for the scientific community.

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

The ethical evaluation ensures that all research activities carried out in the framework of Horizon Europe are carried out in accordance with fundamental ethical principles.
Applicants are asked to carry out an Ethics Self-Assessment of the ethical issues potentially raised by the implementation of the project.
The Ethics Committee, a place for multidisciplinary exchanges, has the mission to accompany and advise project leaders on their scientific approach.

Dissemination of scientific culture and communication The 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 mechanisms. It accompanies and supports research structures in their initiatives to disseminate scientific culture, and offers training for researchers and doctoral students.

Interdisciplinarity An approach at the heart of European policies, it is reflected in particular within AMU by the creation of institutional institutes and the implementation of an interdisciplinary mission. The latter aims to create synergies between transformative projects, to experiment with facilitating and encouraging practices, to define milestones and evaluation tools, and to share good practices within AMU and with our partners.

Submitting an ERC project Through the CERCle - Club des ERC, the institutions of the Aix-Marseille site implement a shared site policy that aims to support the ERC application of researchers and research teachers. Through this mechanism, the scientific community of the site can get in touch with previous laureates, benefit from coaching, training, funding and bibliometric studies. Leader of the CERCle
Presentation of the CERCle
Submitting an MSCA project Protisvalor will provide support for the submission of MSCA projects to researchers and teacher-researchers who are members of AMU management laboratories.
Within the framework of a doctoral network, Euraxess as well as the CIVIS Alliance can be mobilized to disseminate recruitment offers.

Submitting a collaborative project Through its AAP4, A*MIDEX provides support to researchers and professors wishing to coordinate a collaborative project.
For laboratories under AMU management, Protisvalor will provide support for the submission of the project.
The Europe Research Unit can be mobilized to help you identify the main European players in your field, to identify previous funded projects and to define your European strategy.

Training AMU has positioned the development of skills as a strong ambition based on the development of skills and the training of agents in the evolution of professions.
Doctoral students, researchers, teacher-researchers, and technical and administrative staff can thus benefit from training provided by the institution and by partner institutions in the CIVIS alliance.
Finally, the "talent development school" project offers high-level training programs based on skills that will enable each member of the community to face future challenges
