11th Call for Project Swiss Network for International Studies


Submission deadline: 18 January 2018, 13:00 (pre-proposals)

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. Eligible institution of Swiss higher education and research can submit project proposals that qualify as:

  1. International studies: Projects carry out research on global issues that are either relevant in the international arena or at least concern multiple countries simultaneously. The SNIS considers that International Studies deal not only with the analysis of international relations, but also with political, economic, social, environmental, legal, health, scientific and development issues.
  2. Pluri-disciplinary studies: Projects are pluri-disciplinary and they can include disciplines from the social and natural sciences.

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