New frontiers projects

New Frontiers projects are selected by the TULIP International Scientific Board through an annual call. "New Frontiers" refer to projects that are beyond the usual boundaries of our current research bringing new theoretical and conceptual approaches, or developing new methodological approaches. The innovative nature of these projects involves in particular the notion of risk-taking.

An annual budget of 150 k €/year is dedicated to this call for projects and can be used for all expenses: operation, subcontracting, missions, conferences, staff. Equipment investments only are not possible. Few projects are selected (2 to 5 projects maximum) in order to reach a good level of financing per project, the duration of which can be one or two years maximum. This call opened in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018. In the past it already allowed to financially support 15 projects after selection made by our International Scientific Board (ISB).
