SPIRIT (rolling call for pre-proposals)

SPIRIT facilitates knowledge exchange between Swiss researchers and researchers in selected partner countries of low and middle income.

Funding is awarded to research projects with clearly defined goals that are submitted by excellent research consortia from two to four countries. Researchers from all disciplines can apply for a SPIRIT grant; the topics are chosen by the researchers themselves. The grants contribute to the education of researchers in all participating countries. Special focus is given to equal opportunities and the promotion of women scientists, as well as to raising awareness of gender-specific questions.
