MAKE OUR PLANET GREAT AGAIN

On June 1, 2017, following the decision by the United States to exit the Paris Agreement, French president Emmanuel Macron launched a call to researchers and professors, entrepreneurs, associations, non-governmental organizations, students, and civil society as a whole to mobilize and join France in leading the fight against global warming.  The Make Our Planet Great Again Internet platform (#MOGPA) was launched to materialize the call to action, and a priority research program was implemented on fighting climate change, in direct correlation with the scientific objectives of the Montpellier University of Excellence I-SITE.

In addition to support from the supervisory establishments of each research team involved with the call, and support from the Occitanie Region (matching up to 50% of awarded government funding), MUSE I-SITE is offering recruitment funding for each MOPGA project for either a three-year PhD contract or two-year post-doctoral position (representing an additional 100,000 € per MOGPA project).
