Evaluation of Doc.CH: call for submission of study outlines

The SNSF has decided to have its funding scheme Doc.CH evaluated and has launched a corresponding call. Persons or institutions interested in conducting this evaluation study are invited to submit a study outline by no later than 19 March 2018.

Doc.CH is aimed at promising researchers who wish to write a doctoral thesis on a topic of their own choice in the humanities and social sciences in Switzerland. Approx. 230 Doc.CH grants have been awarded so far in ten calls between 2013 and 2017. The SNSF expects the evaluation to provide an initial analysis of the funding scheme's impact.
