New bilateral call with Vietnam

The SNSF is supporting joint projects by Swiss and Vietnamese researchers. 4 million francs are available for this call for projects on the Swiss side.

The Swiss government's bilateral programmes enhance cooperation with non-European countries that have strong research potential. Since 2020, the SNSF has been working in partnership with the National Foundation for Science and Technology Development (NAFOSTED) in Vietnam to fund joint projects between the Swiss and Vietnamese scientific communities.

Submission deadline in April 2024

Researchers from all disciplines are eligible for this call, which opens on 8 January 2024. The submission deadline is 11 April 2024. The projects will run for a period of three or four years, with a maximum of 400,000 francs per project available for the Swiss part. Up to 10 projects will be funded through the budget of the Swiss government's bilateral programmes. NAFOSTED will fund the research conducted in Vietnam.
