The call for projects "Research Partnership Grant" aims at developing new joint project proposals or connecting already existing and independently funded projects in Switzerland and in the MENA partner countries into long-lasting cooperation. The goal of this instrument is to allow researchers to conduct desk work, field research or laboratory feasibility studies, in order to apply for grants from other funding agencies (e.g. national funding agencies or EU funding schemes), and/or to develop long-term partnerships between two institutions or research groups.
The maximum amount that can be requested is CHF 15,000 per project. Approximately ten projects will be selected at the end of the call. The same instrument was offered in 2021 and will be available again in 2023. Eligibility criteria, funding regulation and selection process are given in the call document below.
Applications are closed. Results will be published in December 2022.
