INRAE scientists

Submit and/or jointly construct projects

Submit and/or contribute your ideas linked to the metaprogramme’s scientific themes.
The SANBA metaprogramme does not constitute an additional source of funding but is a management tool designed to “go beyond” the work of standard programmes. It was set up by INRAE to foster interdisciplinarity and be able to offer responses to major societal challenges in the fields of animal health and welfare.

Submit ideas for consortia (networks)

Their aim is to encourage, support and accompany scientific communities or networks linked to the field covered by the metaprogramme. They must produce at least one previously identified deliverable: compilation/organisation of a project, planning/organisation of a seminar/workshop, production of a publication or position paper, etc.
  • Duration: 18 months
  • Procedure: via the AMIs or on an ad hoc basis by directly contacting SANBA managers

Submit PhD projects

  • Joint funding of one or two half-grants for PhD students each year.
  • Frequency: annual
  • Timetable: submission of applications in the autumn each year (September-October depending on the INRAE Division concerned).
  • Procedure for the submission of applications: aligned with those of the INRAE Division to which the applicant is attached. For more information
