The aim of the Fyssen Foundation is to "encourage all forms of scientific inquiry into cognitive mechanisms, including thought and reasoning, which underlie animal and human behavior; their biological and cultural bases, and phylogenetic and ontogenetic development".
The Foundation supports research in ethology, psychology, neurobiology, anthropology, ethnology, human paleontology and archaeology.
Within the context of general activities, the Fyssen Foundation will award: Research Grants
The grants are intended to support post-doctoral researchers, under 35 years of age in the biological sciences and under 40 years of age in the human sciences, rather already holder of a post, who wish to work independently by establishing around them a research team to achieve a collective scientific operation in a laboratory in France and who will work in keeping with the Foundation's goals.
Priority will be given to researchers who will develop their project in a different laboratory from the one they received their doctorate (Ph.D) and from the laboratory(ies) where they are working at present.
The research grant, for one year without renewal, could range from 15000 to 30000 euros.
