Lead Agency applications are part of the SNSF's "project funding" instrument. Within this instrument, applicants are entitled to have up to three grants running simultaneously, provided that one of them is a Weave/Lead Agency/International Co-Investigator Scheme or European Partnership project and provided the three projects clearly address different topics.
The duration of the projects is the same in both countries and must not exceed 36 months.
Submission is only possible to the SNSF, once a year by 1 April.
For the South Tyrol budget, the budget sheets for the financial plan and schedule need to be filled in.
The earliest possible project start date is 1 January of the year following the year of submission.
