Body

The Fondation Pour l’Audition offers a call for proposals to support French research laboratories in the field of hearing sciences, including basic, applied, clinical, sociological and epidemiological research.

The aim is to support new approaches, to promote multidisciplinary research and, more broadly, to implement innovations and outcomes in order to improve hearing health in the short or long term.

Deadline for application: Closed

TOPICS

Applications must comply with FPA’s mission to improve hearing health and promote translational research in the following fields:

BASIC RESEARCH:

  • Auditory pathways and networks.
  • Drug delivery.
  • Gene cell and pharmacological therapies.
  • Pathophysiology of hearing disorders and tinnitus.

MEDICAL AND AUDIOLOGICAL RESEARCH:

  • Cohorts.
  • Epidemiological studies.
  • Development of new audiological diagnostic and screening tests and assessment tools.
  • Psychoacoustics and psychophysics.

APPLIED RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION:

  • Rehabilitation.
  • Patient management.
  • Treatment.

PSYCHOLOGY AND SOCIOLOGY:

  • Public health implication of hearing loss: psychological, physical and/or social aspects of hearing loss.

 

FUNDING

The overall budget of the 2022 call for proposals is set to 900,000 euros. Each project will be funded up to 100,000 euros per year for up to 3 years. The funding is provided annually; continuation of support for an additional two years is based on a report to be evaluated by the Scientific Committee.

ELIGIBILITY

FPA grants are awarded to French teams in academic or clinical public research institutions. Investigators from professional or scholar societies and associations are also eligible.

The principal investigator and co-investigators must hold a faculty appointment (position equivalent to assistant professor or higher) in order to be eligible for a grant from FPA.

International collaborations are encouraged.

Laboratories are ineligible for funding if they hold an active FPA award. Projects involving a member of the FPA Scientific Committee or Board of Directors and his/her laboratory are not eligible for an FPA research grant. Research teams joining the Institut de l’Audition in Paris and teams participating to the Centres de Recherche en Audiologie are also ineligible for funding.

SELECTION PROCESS

The call is organized in five stages:

  1. Submission of a pre-proposal reviewed by the Scientific Committee.
  2. Submission of a full proposal for selected pre-proposals.
  3. Full proposal review by international reviewers.
  4. Selection of full proposals by the Scientific Committee.
  5. Approval of the Board of Directors.
