Sino-Swiss Science and Technology Cooperation

Research cooperation with China

​​In the context of the Sino-Swiss Science and Technology Cooperation (SSSTC 2016), the SNSF and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) have issued a call for Joint Research Projects (JRPs).​

Joint Research Projects (JRPs) allow researchers in Switzerland to collaborate with researchers in China. The projects will have a duration of between three and four years, with funding on the Swiss side amounting to a maximum of CHF 350,000 per project. The costs covered by the grants are comparable to those covered in national SNSF projects (equipment, research funds, salaries).​​
