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. Support is envisaged for up to 11 projects.
Joint Research Projects (JRPs) allow researchers in Switzerland to collaborate with a partner in China. Please note that projects can now have a duration of up to four years and receive funding of up to CHF 350,000 from the SNSF. The project grants cover similar costs as national SNSF projects (equipment, research funds and salaries).
