Seed Money Grants 2017 The goal of the Seed Money Grants is to strengthen or initiate scientific exchang between Swiss and Latin American researchers and institutions in all disciplines by enabling them to jointly undertake preliminary research and organise workshops. Seed Money Grants are particularly useful to develop joint project proposals to be submitted to large funding agencies in Latin America, Switzerland, and Europe or to combine already existing and independently funded projects in Switzerland and the partner countries in order to create long lasting cooperations. For the period 2017-2020, the Leading House will consolidate partnerships with priority countries (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru) according to past activities of the programme and also support new cooperation endeavours with other potential partners in the region. Therefore, the Leading House opens the call, inviting Swiss scholars to propose mono- or interdisciplinary research projects in any Latin American country, involving bilateral or multilateral partnerships. Budget between CHF 10,000 and CHF 25,000 Application Applications shall be submitted in electronic format to the University of St.Gallen Leading House for the Latin American Region: firstname.lastname@example.org Please make sure to read all information included in the call and in the application form. Deadline August 30, 2017 Important Notice Researchers can only apply for one financial instrument of the Leading House for the Latin American Region, either Seed Money Grant or one-year Research Merger.
