Celebrating 25 years of bi-national research and exchange.

The France-Berkeley Fund provides seed funding for new collaborations between faculty and researchers at Berkeley and their counterparts in France.

This month's Spotlight features 2016 grantee Stephen Glaser (Berkeley Engineering), who developed the “SHRIMP: Smart Harbor Implementation” project with Thomas Watteyne (INRIA, Paris) to help marinas monitor boat traffic using wireless sensors.

Organized by FBF '19 grantees Elizabeth Abel and Claire Davison, this colloquium explores the resonance of Virginia Woolf's work across linguistic, historical, and geographic boundaries while probing connections between the medium of radio and modernist aesthetics.

Our first FBF Grantee Spotlight features Berkeley School of Journalism professor Richard Koci Hernandez, who revisits his 2016 “Digital Storytelling Workshop” project with Valerie Jeanne-Perrier (CELSA, Sorbonne Université). Click here to read the full interview.
