National research agency’s success rates on the rise

The success rate for grant applications to France’s national research agency, the ANR, has risen this year according to official figures.

The ANR published the first details of the grant winners for its responsive-mode programmes on 21 July. Overall, 801 projects won funding and will start in the 2016-17 academic year, representing a 12.5 per cent success rate. In 2015, 667 projects won funding, giving a success rate of 9.7 per cent.

In March, president François Hollande promised that the ANR would receive more funding so that success rates could reach between 14 and 20 per cent, depending on the type of project.
