In the context of the Korean-Swiss Science and Technology Programme, the SNSF and the National Research Foundation (NRF) of South Korea launch another call for Joint Research Projects (JRPs).
Joint Research Projects (JRPs) enable researchers in Switzerland to conduct a joint project together with a Korean partner. The projects will have a duration of four years, with funding on the Swiss side amounting to a maximum of CHF 350,000 per project. The costs covered by the grants are comparable to those covered in national SNSF projects (equipment, research funds, salaries).
Projects within the following thematic areas will be funded:
- Molecular physics
- Digital health (this is an interdisciplinary topic; a project part in Social Sciences and Humanities is possible)
- Advanced materials
The call for proposals is open from 17 December 2018 to 14 March 2019.
The submitted applications will be jointly evaluated by the SNSF and the NRF. The SNSF will cover the costs for the Swiss part of the research and the NRF the costs incurred in South Korea. Visit SNSF’s website for more information.
