3) How to participate in the MEM metaprogramme

The financial resources allocated are distributed through an internal joint development process under which decisions are made by all those concerned. These resources are only available to INRA units (wholly INRA or Joint Research Units), but other institutions are welcome to become partners with INRA teams in the projects, by supplying their own funding.

The MEM metaprogramme is not an additional funding window, but a program to "go beyond" conventional programs. It was set up as part of the INRA 2010-2020 guidance document, followed by #Inra2025. To do this, the MEM metaprogramme implements:

Animation / reflection activities:

  • A governance that listens to the INRA scientific community, in particular through the setting up of thematic groups that surround the members of the steering committee and stimulate co-construction projects
  • Scientific networks: Nutrition & Microbial Ecosystems; Modelling; PhytoMic; Chicken Microbiota; Phages.fr
  • MEM Days open to all
  • Communication tools: websites, co-funding of doctoral fellowships, mailing list, newsletter MEM-infos, ...

Project implementation:

  • Calls for projects (AMI 2011, 2012, 2016, 2018)
  • Key-actions and co-built incubated projects

Capacity building:

  • Co-funding of PhD fellowships
  • Label/support for permanent positions
  • Label/support for AgreenSkills post-docs application
  • Support for international development
  • Training

NB The resources allocated to teams via metaprogrammes are :

  • operating credits,
  • grants for doctoral candidates.

This is an internal, joint development process that is consistent with the aims of the metaprogramme. The use of external sources of funding (national, European, etc.) is also encouraged in order to enhance these resources.

Resources are only allocated to INRA Units (INRA only or Joint Research Units), but other institutions are welcome if they wish to become partners with INRA teams in the projects, by supplying their own funding.
