Al Maqdisi Programme 2022

The Al Maqdisi programme is the French-Palestinian Hubert Curien partnership. It is coordinated by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE), the French Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI), and by the Consulate General of France in Jerusalem.

Al Maqdisi Programme aims at developing and strengthening scientific and academic exchanges between French and Palestinian higher education institutions and research organisations. 

To this purpose, it supports the mobility of French and Palestinian researchers and seeks to foster new structuring collaborations, closer ties with the private sector, as well as to encourage the participation of young researchers. The programme is open to all scientific fields.

These programs will provide an opportunity to integrate Palestinian researchers into French-funded research projects and its network of national and international partners and their research funding programs which will allow them to carry out their scientific research projects in collaboration with researchers in France.
