Digital Systems for Humans (DS4H) is a graduate school and a pluridisciplinary research coordination structure focused on scientific, technological and human aspects of the digital world and the digital society. It is part of Université Côte d’Azur, one of the ten French most research-intensive universities.

In 2021, we are awarding 7 research grants in all domains of Digital Systems and the Digital Society, including 4 grants with thematic priorities:

  • Digital and Social Sciences
  • Digital and the Environment
  • Artificial Intelligence, in partnership with the 3IA Côte d’Azur
  • Neural and Cognitive Systems Modelling, in partnership with Neuromod Institute

Contracts are expected to start between July and December 2021.
