After almost 9 years as president of the French Red Cross, Jean-Francois Mattei is engaged in profound reflexion on the deep transformation of humanitarian activities and ethical thought.

This action is given concrete form with the launch for scholarships and call for projects each year. The purpose is to finance postdoctoral thesis enabling an illustration of the main transformations in humanitarian aid, always making ethics the guiding line.

With this approach, the Red Cross Endowment Fund hopes to created a close bond between the academic world and humanitarian players. The CFEF, always with the idea of undertaking sustainable action and appropriate and accurate assessment, wanted to commit to partnering with Professor Mattei and his teams.

We are launching in 2017 a common call for scholarships on the theme “entrepreneurship and humanitarian transition”. This call is widely reported on the French Red Cross Fund website, as well as within academic and research institutions.

We also have decided to sponsor a training seminar organized at Université Senghor d’Alexandrie. Intended for students and future African leaders, the aim of this seminar was to develop their awareness on how ethics and research could improve their vision of international cooperation. 80 students gathered during this 3 day seminar.
