Submission deadline


Under the bilateral programmes run by the Swiss Confederation, the SNSF and the South African National Research Foundation (NRF) have launched a joint call.

The SNSF has launched a second call for Joint Research Projects (JRPs) together with its South African partner organisation, the NRF. JRPs enable researchers in Switzerland to collaborate with a South African partner. The SNSF will cover the costs incurred in Switzerland, and the NRF the costs in South Africa. The two organisations plan to fund 12 projects under the current call; the project duration has been extended to 4 years.

The following topics are addressed in the call:

  • Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being: from new tools to systems understanding
  • Sustainability, focusing on the following fields: Environmental Sciences, Engineering and energy-related issues
  • Social sciences and humanities (including law) in the context of current and coming societal challenges
  • Methodologies and technologies for data intensive applications
