Through the Open Call for the 2023 Collaboration Program (ICP), researchers can develop creative ways to work together to ensure that the best available knowledge supports the design of solutions to the complex issues of our times, in a wide range of fields such as health, migration, environment, peacebuilding and many others. The ICP provides support to collaborative projects that explicitly address a science-policy gap around a global issue of relevance to the work of international Geneva actors.
The call supports projects that stem from collaborations involving at least one academic partner and one policy partner.
Academic partner: an actor formally affiliated with an academic institution or network from any location in the world. The main applicant on the Academic side must hold a PhD and work as researcher or equivalent. Applicants can come from any scientific discipline.
Policy partner: an intergovernmental organisation based in Geneva. Other institutions such as international NGOs, diplomatic missions, governmental agencies, other international institutions, global networks, think tanks, platforms, partnerships, boundary organisations, etc. can also apply as a policy partner provided they explain clearly which intergovernmental processes or organisations will be involved concretely in the project.
Apply online by 9 November 2023. For mor infromation, visit Geneva Science-Policy Interface's website for the call.
