New SNF Call for Joint Research Projects with Japan

The Strategic Japanese-Swiss Science and Technology Programme has launched a new call for joint Research Projects (JRPs), which allow researchers in Switzerland to collaborate with a partner in Japan. The projects have a duration of three years. The grants cover similar costs as national SNSF projects (equipment, research funds and salaries). JSPS will cover the costs incurred by the Japanese partner.

The call is open to projects in the following areas:

  • Biology
  • Medicine
  • Humanities
  • Social Sciences

Application deadline: 6 June 2016

Applications must be submitted to the SNSF (via the mySNF platform) and to JSPS.
