A Research Chair is intended for a renowned researcher of international stature. It can have two modalities: one for a senior researcher, the other for a junior researcher. For the Peace Chair, it was decided that a senior researcher of international renown was the best modality.
Such a Chair is built over time. It is expected to be transversal and multidisciplinary, to establish a permanent creative program and to reinforce the regional research system on the chosen subject.
The MRSH CNRS University of Caen, an experienced mechanism for multidisciplinary reflection and dissemination both internationally and to civil society in the region, will hold the Chair. In addition to hosting the Chair, the MRSH is also at the service of its deployment and development.
It will organize the chair system on behalf of the CNRS, the University of Caen and the Comue. As the guarantor of the scientific quality of the work accomplished, it will associate partners in Normandy and work to create a regional dynamic.
The Chair is granted for a period of three years. It requires attention for the entire duration.
