Starting 1 February 2019, the SNF launches its new program SPIRIT: “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.”
International consortia can request between 50,000 and 500,000 francs in project funds for two to four years. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but selection will be highly competetive as the SNF plans to fund only 12 projects per year.
