Grants for JRPs are meant to promote collaborative projects with clearly defined goals involving at least one Swiss and one South African partner. Applications should describe ambitious research and propose innovative approaches. The research is to be carried out at the research facilities involved; reciprocal visits and short stays in Switzerland for researchers from South Africa and vice-versa are also possible within a JRP.
-Criteria in Switzerland: The SNSF eligibility criteria apply to applicants requesting funding. Furthermore, each applicant can only apply for one project. Private sector partners are welcome to participate but will not be eligible for funding.
