The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) is currently calling for joint research project proposals from Japanese-Swiss collaborative teams on the subject of “Hydrogen as a renewable energy carrier” and other hydrogen related technologies. The call is part of the Strategic Japanese-Swiss Science and Technology Programme, which aims to bring together Swiss and Japanese researchers on specific research questions.
The main purpose of the exchange program is to foster and facilitate the direct exchange between Japanese and Swiss research groups and to enable the mobility of young researchers such as PhD students. The program will fund research stays for a duration of 3-6 months and is open to all scientific fields including social sciences and humanities.
Calls: University Programs
This Executive Master provides all participants with the know-how, the competence necessary for the planning and implementation of logistical projects at the strategic as well as the operational levels. This course is conceived for University graduates (Master’s degree or equivalent titles) who wish to gain an additional special education in logistics. A continuing education program is also organized
Discover how science and technology help us reduce disaster risk and increase resilience. This course aims to introduce participants to existing and emerging technologies suitable for disaster risk reduction while promoting the overall aim of sustainable development. The course focuses on three main natural hazards- floods, landslides and earthquakes. It also discusses the challenges and limits of adapting and adopting technologies depending on context (Global North and Global South) with examples from Switzerland, Nepal, Colombia, Philippines and other countries.
