Swiss-South African Joint Research Programme

Research cooperation with South Africa

In the context of the Swiss-South African Joint Research Programme (SSAJRP), the SNSF has launched two calls for joint research projects (JPRs) with its sister organisation in South Africa, the National Research Foundation (NRF).

Following their successful collaboration, the two funding agencies have signed a Lead Agency agreement. Joint projects can now be submitted directly to SNSF project funding or to the NRF. For more information, please refer to:
