Research Partnership Grants 2021 The goal of the Research Partnership Grants is to strengthen or initiate scientific exchange between researchers from Swiss and Latin American institutions in all disciplines by enabling them to jointly undertake preliminary research and organize meetings, conferences, or workshops. Research Partnership 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 cooperation. For the period 2021-2024, the Leading House will support new cooperation endeavors with all potential partners in the region. Therefore, the Leading House opens the call, inviting scholars from Switzerland to propose mono- or interdisciplinary research projects in any Latin American country, involving bilateral or multilateral partnerships. The call is open to all disciplines and fields. However, this year’s call is restricted to certain SDGs and thematic areas (see Call). Additionally, proposals have to guarantee a direct transfer to society. Grants between CHF 10,000 and CHF 25,000 will be awarded. Application Before applying, please make sure you have read all information given in the Call, the General Grant Guidelines, and the Budget.
