Industry Academia Research & development programme ( IARDP) formerly named as Industrial Research Programme (IRP) of Indo-French Centre for Promotion of Advanced Research (CEFIPRA) was launched in 2002 to support collaborative research programme involving Industry & Academia of both the countries.
The proposals that can be submitted in the framework of this programme should preferentially involve at least one industrial partner and one research partner each from India & France (2+2 Model).
However, project proposal not fulfilling this 2+2 model are also eligible (at least one industrial partner either in France or in India and a research/Institute partner from the other country) but the proposal documents clearly justify the situation not fulfilling this 2+2 model. Further, the scope of work and responsibilities of each participating partner in the project proposal must be highlighted.
Principal Collaborators and Joint Collaborators from Institutes should have permanent position in an Indian or French University/R&D Institution.They should meet national level eligibility criteria with respect to the operation of grants and age of retirement.
