Researchers

Under the auspices of the Institute for European and Global Studies, the Alliance Europa programme brings together teacher-researchers from the universities of Nantes, Angers and Le Mans, as well as ESSCA [as well as associated researchers and experts].

Any teacher-researcher in social sciences from one of these institutions addressing issues related to the scientific project of Alliance Europa can join this collective.

What are the advantages for teacher-researchers?

Teacher-researchers within the Alliance Europa network:

– gain visibility at regional level but also at a more global level

– are in touch with other researchers and actors in the area

– participate in a multidisciplinary framework of reflection

– count among the actors reflecting on European issues for tomorrow’s Europe

– can be supported to develop new innovative research and teaching projects

– can apply for funding for a research project, international mobility, hosting international researchers.

– receive support in monitoring and setting up projects funded by the European Union, the ANR, or other schemes

Researchers within Alliance Europa can have different levels of involvement. The axis coordinators, researchers involved from the outset in the structuring of Alliance Europa are the reference researchers for each of the scientific axes of Alliance Europa. “Accompanied” chairs and researchers are supported by Alliance Europa for the development of their research. Other researchers take part in certain Alliance Europa projects and are regularly informed of current events in the area of European studies. Associate experts and researchers promote the development of the international dimension of the collective. Doctoral students are also welcome to join the collective.

Where?

Participation in Alliance Europa does not affect the place of research or the affiliation to research laboratories.
