At the National Science Centre (NCN), the Weave process can be initiated as part of the OPUS funding scheme (if NCN acts as a lead agency) or within the Weave-UNISONO scheme (if SNSF acts as a lead agency).

Weave 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 is 24, 36 or 48 months. The project is due to start on the same date in both countries.

The next deadline for submissions to the NCN is in December 2024.

If the application is submitted to the NCN, a copy must be submitted to the SNSF via mySNF within seven days.

In the case the SNSF has the lead and the budget in euros for Polish teams in the budget table submitted to the SNSF differs significantly from the budget in zloty introduced into NCN submission OSF system, the proposal will be rejected for formal reasons. Please consult the NCN websiteExternal Link Icon for the valid euro/zloty exchange rate.
