The FRQ partners with the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts to launch a new bilateral research program on artificial intelligence in health. The program was jointly developed by FRQS and WKS at the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR).

The main objective of this program is to establish new collaborative efforts or reinforce existing collaborations to advance knowledge and technology in Artificial Intelligence for Health.
The joint projects must relate to health topics and must ensure that the development of artificial intelligence is an added value to the development of products, tools, interventions, or applications in the field of health.

Researchers are invited to mobilize quickly. Teams must be made up of a minimum of 2 people:

– One principal investigator from Bavaria. The call is open to researchers (post-doctorate or higher-level scientific staff)
– One principal investigator from Quebec with status 1 or 2 of the Common General Rules (CGR) of FRQ

Funding is 225 000 € (in total; over 3 years) for the Bavarian team and $225,000 (in total; over 3 years) for the Quebec team.

Deadline for registration is September 22, 2021 (mandatory).
Deadline for full application is October 13, 2021.
