Swiss Network for International Studies (SNIS) Call for Projects 2022

Swiss Network for International Studies (SNIS) Call for Projects 2022

The Swiss Network for International Studies (SNIS) offers project grants for pluri-disciplinary research teams. The project grants run for two years and range from 100’000 to 300’000 Swiss Francs.

Project proposals by eligible institutions (Universities, Universities of Applied Science, Universities of Teacher Education) must qualify as:

  • International studies: The SNIS adopts an inclusive understanding of International studies. Therefore, research in international studies concerns issues that are pluri-disciplinary, relevant to the international agenda, and for which international cooperation is required to produce policy-relevant outputs. Issues may combine political, economic, social, environmental, historical, legal, health, scientific, and development dimensions of complex societal questions.
  • Pluri-disciplinary: Projects are pluri-disciplinary and they can include disciplines from both the social and natural sciences.

In addition to the above criteria, the SNIS strongly encourages collaborations with International Organizations and NGOs.

Submission deadline: 20 January 2022 at 13:00h (CET)

RESEARCH GRANTS ON EDUCATION: LARGE

RESEARCH GRANTS ON EDUCATION: LARGE

The Large Research Grants on Education Program supports education research projects that will contribute to the improvement of education, broadly conceived, with budgets ranging from $125,000 to $500,000 for projects ranging from one to five years. We anticipate awarding grants with budgets across each of the following funding tiers — $125,000 to 250,000; $250,001 to $375,000; and $375,001 to $500,000. We accept Intent to Apply forms twice a year.

This program is “field-initiated” in that proposal submissions are not in response to a specific request for a particular research topic, discipline, design, method, or location. Our goal for this program is to support rigorous, intellectually ambitious and technically sound research that is relevant to the most pressing questions and compelling opportunities in education.

Applications Open: December 1, 2021

Intent to Apply: January 26, 2022 12:00PM (Noon) CENTRAL

SPIRIT – Swiss Programme for International Research by Scientific Investigation Teams

SPIRIT – Swiss Programme for International Research by Scientific Investigation Teams

SNSF offers a wide range of international funding schemes and works closely with foreign funding organisations to promote cross-border collaboration. The SPIRIT programme facilitates knowledge exchange between Swiss researchers and researchers in selected countries that are receiving development assistance. With SPIRIT, the SNSF is giving Swiss researchers more opportunities to collaborate with partners in many countries around the world.

The programme is intended for two to four research groups, out of which one applicant must engage in research work in Switzerland, and at least one applicant must do so in an eligible partner country. Further applicants in a partner country or in Switzerland may be added. However, the total of applicants may not exceed four persons. Swiss applicants must meet the eligibility requirements applicable to SNSF project funding. These requirements apply mutatis mutandis to applicants from abroad.​

Deadline: Applicants can request between 50,000 and 500,000 francs in project funds for two to four years. At least 30% of each approved grant must be allocated to Switzerland and at least 30% to the relevant partner country/countries.
