A networking of networks

FALAH ensures the networking of networks combining scientific proximities and disciplinary complementarities from local to regional to international. These networks feed each other through mobility and exchanges that punctuate the scientific agenda of the project.

In New Caledonia

At regional level

The three UNC teams - the Institute of Exact and Applied Sciences (ISEA-EA7484), the Interdisciplinary Educational Research Laboratory (LIRE EA7483) and the Research Centre for Law and Economics (LARJE-EA3329) - form the basic framework of the FALAH project.

At the local level, the three UNC teams and the partners of the Consortium for Research, Higher Education and Innovation of Caledonia [CRESICA: Institut Agronomique Calédonien (IAC) and the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD)] constitute the New Caledonian network of the FALAH project.

The project involves two partner universities of PIURN (Pacific Island Universities Research Network) located in Fiji and Solomon Islands, the South Pacific Community (SPC) in Fiji and Noumea, the Ministry of Education and Training of Vanuatu and the Vanuatu Agricultural Research and Technical Center.

FALAH integrates teams from two European partner countries (France and Germany). The German team is from the Ludwig Maximilians Universität München (LMU), and the French teams are from the Université Toulouse Jean-Jaurès (UT2J) and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in Montpellier.

The project includes close collaborations with four Australian universities: the University of Sydney (USYD), the University of New South Wales (UNSW), the University of Western Sydney (WSU) and the University of Wollongongong (UOW).
