Vietnamese-Swiss Joint Research Programme
Research collaboration with Vietnam
Under the bilateral cooperation programmes of the Swiss government, the SNSF is launching a call for Joint Research Projects (JRPs) together with the National Foundation for Science & Technology Development (NAFOSTED) in Vietnam.
The JRPs will enable researchers in Switzerland to carry out joint projects with research partners in Vietnam. The projects will run for a period of two to three years; a maximum of 250,000 francs per project will be available for the Swiss part. The costs are similar to those currently chargeable to national project grants awarded by the SNSF.
Call for proposals 2020
Open to all fields of research, the call for proposals was launched on 1 October 2020, with the submission deadline on 15 January 2021. The SNSF and NAFOSTED jointly evaluated the proposals. Of the 44 submitted projects, ten were selected for funding. The SNSF will cover the costs of research in Switzerland while NAFOSTED will fund the teams in Vietnam.
