Argentinian-Swiss Joint Research Programme
Research cooperation with Argentina
The Argentinian-Swiss Joint Research Programme is aimed at researchers in Switzerland who wish to address specific research questions together with partners in Argentina.
Joint Research Projects (JRPs) allow researchers in Switzerland to collaborate with a partner in Argentina. The projects have a duration of three years and the SNSF will cover up to CHF 250'000.- for the Swiss partner. The project grants cover similar costs as national SNSF projects (equipment, research funds and salaries). The National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET) and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation (MINCyT) will cover the Argentinian partner's research and collaboration costs.
The call for proposals which was open to all thematic research areas was open from 1 July to 3 October 2016.
The 80 submitted applications were jointly evaluated by the SNSF and CONICET. 10 applications were approved for funding. The SNSF covers the costs of CHF 2,5 million for the Swiss part of the research and CONICET and MINCyT cover the costs in Argentina.
