Second call for NRP 73

NRP 73 ″Sustainable Economy″ is launching a second call to fill research gaps. The first projects of NRP 73 got underway in early 2018. They cover a wide range of research topics. But a few research gaps remain. The Steering Committee of NRP 73 is hoping to close them by launching a second call.

For the second call, the NRP has a budget of CHF 1.6 million, which will be enough to fund four to eight new projects. Researchers who are interested in the call are invited to submit a letter of intent to by 29 August 2018. If the proposed project is not in line with the aims of the second call, the Steering Committee will inform the applicants by the end of September. All other applicants will have the opportunity to submit a full proposal until 14 November 2018, 17:00 CET.

Defined topics

Projects of the second call must fall into defined areas, including legal aspects of the transformation and important aspects of sustainable consumption patterns. In addition, the Steering Committee is looking for projects on the sustainable development of Switzerland as a major commodity trade hub.
