Joint Research Projects (JRPs) between Switzerland and Russia

The funding of 23-26 projects is envisaged in the call. JRPs enable researchers in Switzerland to collaborate with a Russian partner. The projects, which last for up to three years, are funded on the Swiss side with a maximum grant of CHF 250,000. The costs covered by the grants are comparable to those incurred in national SNSF projects (equipment, research funds, salaries).
In addition, the Leading House (University of Geneva) provides a specific web platform for researchers to publish their profile, identify new partners and prepare their projects together:
