Through the Impact Collaboration Programme (ICP), The Geneva Science-Policy Interface provides a unique funding instrument to spot, support and scale collaborations that contribute to strengthening science-informed policy-making and build policy-relevant research and tools.
This programme finance :
- Maximum 60,000 CHF per project
- Tailored support and advice to help maximise impact
- A learning framework to elicit knowledge and build capacity in science-policy boundary-spanning
Who is eligible?
The call supports projects that stem from collaborations that involve at least one actor from an academic institution (no geographical limitation), and one actor from the International Geneva ecosystem carrying policy work (e.g. international organisations, programmes, funds, NGOs; see list of eligible actors here). The ICP provides support to collaborative projects and initiatives that explicitly address a science-policy gap around a global issue of relevance to the work of International Geneva actors. Individuals (with affiliations), institutions and consortia can apply to the programme. See ‘eligibility criteria’ for more information.
