Call for proposals: Strategic Japanese-Swiss Science and Technology Programme

For 2022, the SNSF and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) are launching a joint call for proposals on the theme of “Designing Future Societies”. The call is aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and World Expo 2025 in Osaka, and is open to projects from all disciplines.

The SNSF will cover project costs in Switzerland, while JSPS will cover the costs in Japan. The project duration is three years. The maximum permissible budget for a three-year project is 250,000 Swiss francs for the Swiss part.

The available funds will enable funding of 10 projects.

Interested researchers are invited to submit their proposals to the SNSF by the submission deadline of 30 June 2022. Researchers in Japan must simultaneously register the basic project data with JSPS.
