Swiss-Korean Joint Research Project

In the context of the bilateral programmes initiated by the federal government, the SNSF and the National Research Foundation (NRF) of South Korea are issuing a call for research projects.

The SNSF has launched a second call for Joint Research Projects (JRPs) together with its South Korean partner organisation, the NRF. JRPs enable researchers in Switzerland to collaborate with a South Korean partner. The SNSF will cover the costs incurred in Switzerland, and the NRF the costs in South Korea. The two organisations plan to fund up to 12 projects under the current call; the project duration has been extended to 4 years.

The following topics are addressed in the call:

  • Molecular physics
  • Digital health (this is an interdisciplinary topic; a project part in Social Sciences and Humanities is possible)
  • Advanced materials
