General call for projects - 2020

The FIRAH General Call for Projects is broad-based, complementing other Calls for Projects on specific topics launched in 2020.


This year, the General Call for Projects has the following priorities:

  • education for children and young people with disabilities, from to pre-school to university;
  • exercise of citizenship and representation.


Nonetheless, the FIRAH would be interested in proposals on different topics.

The FIRAH may also select high-quality projects on other topics, if such projects meet the 6 selection criteria of this call for Projects. 

Project leaders may be from any country in the world. For non-French project leaders, special attention will be paid to projects carried out in partnership with a French organization to develop international collaboration in this field and promoting the results or the research in France with adequate French translation especially for implementation support tools.

Comparative research concerning several countries with a French field research are particularly awaited.
