The FIRAH General Call for Projects is broad-based.

Nonetheless, FIRAH would be interested in proposals on different topics.
Note also that this Call for Projects concerns all types of disability, and all ages. It is international: project leaders and research fields can be from anywhere in the world.

Self-esteem & Disability (in partnership with the L'Oréal Foundation)

The L’Oréal Foundation and FIRAH have launched a call for applied research projects called "Self-esteem and Disability". The aims are to improve support for persons with disabilities for affirming their dignity and identity, and thereby contribute to the necessary change in how society sees persons with disabilities.

Poverty & Disability, in partnership with the French Red Cross and Fondation MAAF Initiatives et Handicap

Disability has been proven to generate conditions of poverty; reciprocally, poverty is seen as a significant factor in the emergence and aggravation of disabling situations. 

The comprehensive objectives of the current research programme are to underscore the correlations between disablity and precarity/poverty to identify the processes and activities implemented with a view to provide concrete solutions that improve conditions and quality of life for people.

This call for projects encompasses the situations and populations described below.
-Precarity and poverty in general, defined as partial or total lack of resources, regardless of the causes.
-All persons with disabilities: physical, sensory, intellectual and/or mental impairments, regardless of the cause of onset; children, adults or older persons; and all living situations – at home, in institutions, without a permanent address, or in prison...
Given the broad scope, persons submitting projects can focus their research on populations and situations in accordance with their objectives.

Deadline for letters of intent- 00:00 (CET) 25 March 2019
