In the context of the Swiss-South African Joint Research Programme (SSAJRP), the SNSF is launching another call for joint research projects (JPRs) with its sister organisation in South Africa, the National Research Foundation (NRF). It is expected that twelve projects will be funded; the new maximum duration of projects is four years.
Thanks to JRPs, researchers in Switzerland can undertake joint projects with a partner in South Africa. Projects last four years and Switzerland contributes funding of up to CHF 350,000 per project. Grants cover similar costs as national SNSF projects (equipment, research funds, salaries).
