Since 2018, the TANDEM program endeavors excellency in social sciences and humanities by bringing together Czech and French colleagues to intensify scientific collaboration between our countries in the frame of European Research Area. The program is a joint initiative of CEFRES, CNRS, and the Czech Academy of Sciences (AV ČR) in the frame of the CEFRES Platform of scientific collaborations, founded 2014/2015. Its former members have obtained two ERC grants, including the BOAR project.


Charles University, the French National Research Center (CNRS) and the French Research Center in Humanities and Social Sciences in Prague (CEFRES) are launching the first call for applications for the TANDEM incubator program dedicated to researchers from CNRS and Charles University.

The aim of the newly launched program starting in 2024 is to associate one CU researcher and one CNRS or affiliated to CNRS researcher (i.e. member of an UMR) around a joint research project leading to foster joint Czech-French scientific collaboration through the submission of a project proposal:

  • in an ERC call (primarily)

  • in other calls of the EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation (Horizon Europe)

  • in other calls supporting excellent research of comparable significance, e. g. calls of the French Science Foundation (ANR)
