The Papiers du Fonds are publications to which the French Red Cross Fund provide open access in order to disseminate the results and prospects of the research it funds. These are texts from 15 to 25 pages written by the recipients of the scientific post-doctoral fellowships awarded by the Fund, at the end of their research year. They therefore refer directly to the research theme developed thanks to the Fund’s funding and, just as working papers, present the first results of ongoing analysis.

The arguments and opinions expressed in theses articles engage the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect those of the French Red Cross Fund.
